A senior Supply Chain professional with a wide range of operational experiences in the Consumer Electronics industry. Having worked at Philips Electronics for 24 years, he has held positions in Sales Organisations, Business Units, Consumer Service, and Divisional HQ.
In virtually every position he held, Niels was challenged by innovative business process (re-)engineering and continuous improvements in value delivery. Thus he established a proven track-record to realize challenging changes in complex environments, a capability now deployed through his own supply chain management services company chaintel.
Niels is characterized as a team player. He is committed to the business he engages with, and to realizing it's shared objectives. In doing so, he is constantly pushing the envelope, both of his own capacities as well as the organizational environment. Thereby he challenges his co-workers and managers to break-out of the boxed-in constraints of 'common wisdom' and instead explore more adventurous and rewarding avenues.
