Major Achievements

Restructuring a 350 employee subsidiary of a multinational. Leading 2 redundancy plans, meeting deadline and budget objectives. At the same time, federating teams to make the best out of a difficult situation. In a challenging environment, maintaining turnover (comparable) : +1%; improving conversion rate (+7%) and average spend (+4%). Most of all, this experience made me realize my ability to lead operations in turmoil and to negotiate efficiently both with steering committee based in the UK and with local teams. This experience was my last as permanent contract and was a stepping stone to interim management.
