Philippe M.

Summary

With more than 35 years of experience across the world and the vast majority in Africa, still in managerial positions but also in the field, I would be very happy to to bring all my knowledge in a new challenge.
Country manager and Ops Manager are my main expertises after decades of experiences in logistics, operations or HSE departments.
Perfectly adaptable to all situations, accustomed to managing crises, my great added value is knowing how to implement solutions adapted to the countries and cultures in which I had to work.
Former officer of the French army, the rigor and the requirement are qualities which are recognized to me while bringing a strong personality which allows to understand the stakes and to propose relevant strategies in a team spirit.
Multimodal logistics cannot be envisaged without a perfect understanding of the risks or neglecting economic constraints. This mastery from my experience allows me to offer my services within any company.
Many references are at your disposal to demonstrate my total commitment oriented towards the success of operations in a spirit of empowerment of each employee.
