I am the acting CEO of Thépenier Pharma (€14.4 M - 110 people) - a subsidiary of Nippon Shikizai Inc., a listed company at the Tokyo Stock Exchange - which dedicates its activities to the development, manufacturing and packaging of cosmetics and pharmaceutical products (dermatological & skin care, Ear Nose Throat, oral care and makeup products).
For over a year, I have been heading all the operations of the company, while retaining direct management of Administration & Finance, Sales and Purchase departments. I am also the Plant manager of the company.
Since 2013, together with the President and with the support of a renewed management team, we established a corporate restructuring process based on a strategic policy which aim was to stimulate productive investment, modernize and automate Thépenier Pharma's industrial equipment, restructure purchase and overhead accounting items and boost our R&D creativity. All this in a context of refocusing Thépenier Pharma on its core business.
As a matter of fact, 3 years later, the restructuring process led to doubling production operators’ individual productivity, to the systematization of 3-shift work in the factory, to a 45% turnover organic growth and eventually to restoring the company's profitability (OP = 5% of the turnover knowing that the company had been in deficit for over 10 yrs). That said, we remain humble before these achievements and look forward to pursuing our efforts to reach critical size by 2020, thanks to the implementation of a continuous improvement policy.
All in all, in the framework of my professional career, I acquired and refined the following skills:
- Corporate (re)structuring
- Administration & Finance (including purchase, insurance and IT)
- Marketing & sales strategy
- HR management
- Business Law
- Supply chain management
- Intercultural management.
I am a member of the Executive Committee and Works Council and chair the Health & Safety Committee.
I speak fluent French and English.
