Interim professional and specialist in Supply Chain Management

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 the field of 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 of more than 30 local operations into a centrally managed European supply chain organization with a standard warehouse , transport and distribution system and supported by a logistics IT system. In addition to planning, budget, organization and risk management, stakeholder management was the key to success when implementing the program.

In addition, I guide teams and individual employees/managers to improve processes and output. I coach immigrants with a BSc / MSc rated diploma to enter the labour market. I advise companies in developing countries. I work from Blokzijl and Amsterdam.

Advice on (changes in) the supply chain (planning, S&OP, procurement,  inventory management, warehousing, transport- and distribution systems) and the organization.

I am an operations, change and program/project manager. Re-engineering, restructuring and professionalization of organizations is core business. I am employable in all elements of the field of supply chain management.

From 2010 I operate as independent Business Consultant and have carried out assignments at DHL Supply Chain, AbbVie, Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Zebra Technologies, CooperSurgical Inc and Wabtec Corporation.

In my position as Vice President Logistics Operations at Yamaha Motor Europe NV (until 2010), the conception, development and implementation of new organizations (including integrated work processes, HR and IT) was the objective. The program to turn a decentralized supply chain organization of more than 30 local operations into a central managed supply chain organization with an uniform, transparent and simple structure and  a footprint with 6 pan-European DC’s has been successfully implemented. Intensive consultation with stakeholders (internal and external) was key for success.

Recently I focus on coaching (for teams and individual employees / managers) resulting in a higher interest in changing and improving operational processes. And I coach status holders (immigrant with work and residence permit) with higher education (BSc/Msc) to find a proper job.

I work from Blokzijl and Amsterdam. For more details of each assignment, please check “track record”.

Coach for high educated immigrants with residence/working permit

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, health and therefore for integration in the Netherlands. 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. I walk on with the status holder: sometimes as a support, and often as a sounding board.
