En résumé

J'ai 20 ans d'experience dans l'industrie, en France et à l'international (Suède, Canada, Belgique), sur 3 principaux axes ; le Lean Manufacturing, le management de la supply chain et des equipes autonomes de production (assemblage, injection plastique et usinage soudage chaudronnerie).
Sur 2017, je recherche de nouveaux challenges m'amenant sur des responsabilités de site ou unité autonome avec une préférence sur des enjeux de developpement et optimization des performances industrielles et flux (site industriel ou plateforme logistique).
