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.
