Supply Chain Manager
Jean-Claude (JC) is a qualified supply chain professional having specialised within the mining, earthmoving and construction industry.
JC has worked under large stock exchange companies where he made use of analytical and quantitative methods to understand, predict, and enhance supply chain processes. Through this analysis, the identification of underperforming areas within the supply chain are performed upon which suggestion on improvements/solutions are made. The movement of goods are analysed through the supply pipeline, where JC monitors current processes as well as identify and analyse gaps and develop process improvements. Within the role JC also makes use of various skills in database management and spreadsheet analysis to help the business increase cash flows, inventory turns and employee productivity.
All though having been exposed to the FMCG environment, the challenges faced within the mining and earthmoving industry have proven to be more complicated than FMCG due to the erratic demand and has therefore allowed him to develop a special set of skills to optimise the agile supply chain network from transportation costs to having stock and warehouses as close to the customer as possible with minimum capital investment.
On the side, Jean-Claude also owns a small Bistro & Café within the food industry thus showing his true flexibility and knowledge of business and supply chain.
