Group head office
Based in South China in Canton, as part of an expatriation program, I manage a multicultural team and travel around this large country on a regular basis in order to meet our Chinese clients in the automotive industry. The aim is to create and maintain local ties, which are absolutely key to medium- and long-term cooperation in our activity.Jean Philippe
These business trips are incredibly rewarding: they allow me to continually discover new aspects of the Chinese culture and to meet and learn from people with very different working methods and visions from those in the West.
These experiences continually feed my curiosity and challenge my open-mindedness and ability to adapt.
Head of the Business Unit in China - Filling | Sealing
In my role as Group HSE Coordinator, which is very hands-on, I must be visible in all Fives business sectors. I visit all our workshops and construction sites supervised by the Group in the world to conduct HSE audits, attend meetings and deliver training. Being in the field is key to finding the right solutions to companies’ problems.Pascal
These numerous visits have allowed me to discover all of Fives’ technologies, whether it’s in our production and assembly workshops or on our customers’ sites. It has also given me a cross-cutting vision of the Group’s activities. However, the most interesting aspect of these trips for me is discovering different cultures and meeting people with different ways of life and philosophies. It has opened my eyes to the wider world and given me a different view of my life in the West. It has also helped me to not overreact to specific situations that take place in our workshops or on sites and to be able to come up with responses that are best adapted to the local context."
