Interim Operations Director, France based, for a €4M turnover business unit responsible for all factory and supply chain activity
Took over an operational facility that had had three Operations Directors in three years and was going to miss its financial targets
Planned, drove and achieved factory operations hitting very challenging half year output and financial targets, improved processes and recruited my replacement
As Interim Directeur des Operations for a French company producing a mix of volume and bespoke precision interlock systems, my responsibility included production planning, complex component supply chain and assembly.
I maximised output for an ambitious half-year target, successfully flexing capacity in a difficult trading period and within national (French) regulations.
I introduced simple systems to bring early visibility of day to day operational problems and took appropriate actions to eliminate them, incrementally improving the production operation as a whole.
I recruited a new Directeur des Operations through the French press to replace me.
