Supply Chain Director

Traditionally, lean manufacturing and smart sourcing fall under different disciplines in a company, despite the specialisms being closely related. Because both focus on efficient production. But times change. And Maes & Lunau has identified a trend: the disciplines are merging, with the automotive industry as the clear leader. An industry which is highly proficient at optimising processes and systems.


As keeping pace with the times and responding to the latest developments are important for a strong chain, all Supply Chain Directors will need to focus on merging lean manufacturing and smart sourcing. The aim is to create the most effective chain of goods and services: from the supplier to the customer or consumer. With attention to procurement, manufacturing and logistics. As an executive search firm, we are keen to make an important contribution to finding the perfect person for the position of Supply Chain Director.
