HEAD OF MANUFACTURING - JAPAN
A major French Dairy company was looking for Plant head in Japan. Because of the plant location and nCoV so there was no local applicant for this position. Finally, Japan MD had decided to hire interim plant head for this position and coach Quality head to be the successor of future plant head.
The interim plant head must be willing to learn local culture because 90% of employees are Japanese. On the other hand, the plant was undergoing a Capex project to renew plant facility and increased production capacity.
After mapping, we found a French gentleman who just came from Nestle Europe and followed family relocation to Japan. This is a senior operation expert and knew plant process from A to Z.
After 6 months tenure, the interim plant head had successfully built up the reputation in the team and helped quality head to be the successor.
