I am an operations, change and program / project manager and I am involved in restructuring and professionalization of organizations. I have been working as an independent interim professional since 2010 and am a specialist in supply chain management.
In my position as Vice President Logistics Operations at Yamaha Motor Europe NV (until 2010), I was responsible for the program to transform a decentralized logistics organization from over 30 local operations into a centrally managed European supply chain organization with pan-European stock management, a standard warehouse, transport and distribution system and supported by a logistics IT system. In addition to planning, budget, organization and risk management, communication and stakeholder management were the keys to success in the realization of the program.
For an immigrant with working/residence permit in the Netherlands are a lot of bumps to take in the search for work: cultural differences, the language barrier and all the rules in the Netherlands. And it is important they go to work quickly. It is good for their integration, self-image,self confidence and health. These immigrants (and certainly this group with a good education at HBO level) bring many talents and experiences. They are entrepreneurial, have perseverance and they are multilingual. I guide the search for work and be the intermediate between the immigrant and the employer.
