I am a Senior Manufacturing Consultant at Henkan, with over 30+ years of industry experience holding regional and global positions, within international blue chip organisations.

I have been fortunate enough to experience establishing and optimizing various supply chains in multiple regions and business units in Ukraine, Germany, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Italy, Mexico, Vietnam, China, Czech, Slovakia, Poland and Russian Federation. Driven by natural curiosity I have found all my positions interesting and rewarding, whilst enjoying the challenges of living as a global citizen in an expatriate world. This wide range of cultures, people and businesses helped me realise my core values and principles.

As an Executive Leader in the global supply chain (manufacturing and supply chain optimization) solutions, I have found exciting to participate in the business growth, to multinational FMCG companies.

My work has given me the opportunity to work in strong business partnerships with Plant Managers to support their businesses and leverage resources for development and roll-out of best practices, strategy development, cost savings, sustainable performance reliability, and productivity improvement.

My experience with bringing together manufacturing sites within a diverse geography, has given me the knowledge and experience to optimise communication and business processes to drive results, across all levels and divisions.

I am married to my wonderful wife Irina, and am a proud Father and Grandfather. I also enjoy extreme sports (scuba diving, alpine skiing, road cycling, mountain biking) as well as enjoying moments of photo art and cooking.

“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.”
