Over 12+ years of professional experience in Manufacturing and Logistics, supporting a high-level project to implement TPM within Logistics on a Blue-Chip company in Brazil. My approach to implementing change programmes focus on engaging, motivating and developing people through active communication, coaching and training. Hands-on experience, having developed numerous projects in Customer Service & Logistics with millions saved through process optimisation, inventory and lead-time reduction.

I am passionate about Continuous Improvement and a believer that people are the heart of every Change Management program. My motto while fostering change is to “Clarify, prepare and let people shine”, and that is supported by Dedication to share and serve, Determination to overcome any given obstacle, and Discipline to always align with the customer vision to keep focused until seeing the result coming through.

My role at Henkan involves supporting the Managing Directors and Senior Consultants in blending and developing methodologies with a focus on simplicity and agility as results of the application. That is the perfect combination as intrapreneurship spirit is at the core of everything I do, developing new tools and finding new, more effective ways to perform any process.

One of my biggest passion is to mountain bike through the steepest mountains and to discover new challenges on every bike trip. I am married to the most beautiful women who supports me in everything I do, and that has gifted hands for cooking, which combines perfectly with my love for good food. Hope to see you around on the road or mountains.

“Jean has been in charge of Business Transformation and Continuous Improvement for 4 years in France and 2 years in the same time for Iberia (Spain and Portugal), for Philips global then Philips Lighting. During this period, he has achieved great training results, by certifying almost 500 people on Lean Basics, 10 managers on Lean Advanced (Green Belt level).

In addition, he has led 3 successful international training sessions of Daily Management in France, Iberia and Italy (70 persons including Iberia MT’s and France’s and Italy’s Supply Chain managers). His training and coaching skills have been unanimously recognised, reaching a great satisfaction level from trainees ( No Net Promoter Score (NPS) lower than 50%, with 4 sessions over 80%.).

Jean has also successfully led many lean transformations, including a Customer Kaizen Event for Rexel France, that involved the entire management teams of both Philips Lighting and Rexel France. Within 6 months, thanks to an improved Rexel/Philips collaborative planning, he managed to increase forecast accuracy from 60% to 76%, to reduce level of stock obsolescence from 55 days to 32 days,  to drop obsolescence stock from 67K€ to < 30k€, to secure an additional revenue of 5M€ in 2016.

Jean is a passionate, challenging and delivery focused  lean leader and trainer. I believe he would be a great asset to any team or organisation implementing the lean philosophy and therefore  I highly recommend him in his new role as leader of Henkan France.”
