mission de management de transition : Develop the activity of a leader in electronics



Pierre, graduated of the Ecole Normale Supérieure en Electrotechnique (Paris-Saclay), after a few years of collaboration in R&D with manufacturers, joined a computer manufacturer and worked in various industrial functions (quality, supply chain, etc.), expanding his scope to the EMEA zone. He continued his career with one of the world's leading automation companies, finally managing the group's Business unit (B.U).

This European group with 2,500 employees is one of the leaders in the transformation of precious metals and electronics. The group’s largest site is based in France and is dedicated to large-scale, high value-added production.

Its markets are developing rapidly worldwide. However, the group is not sufficiently advanced in the field of large-scale production.

Content of the mission

Talents & Projets urgently asked me to replace the BU manager who had just left for the competition, without giving his notice.

After a few weeks of integration to understand the specificities of this new and technical activity, I first focus on the efficiency of exchanges between R&D, operations and customer-facing teams

With my background in operations, I work with industrial teams to implement best practices for mass market.

At the end of my 15-month mission, I was recruited by the group on a permanent basis.
