Our 2016 experts

Discover the profiles of the members of the 2016 Pack Experts Committee. The trade shows EMBALLAGE and MANUTENTION > ALL4PACK Paris have enlisted the support of packaging professionals from leading international groups in their respective fields (Food, Healthcare, Toiletries, Distribution, Capital Goods, etc.) as well as ECO-EMBALLAGES (the French organisation for the promotion of sustainable packaging). In addition, this year we have expanded the membership of our “think tank” to include supply chain experts, in association with ASLOG (French Logistics Association). This addition of contrasting forms of expertise enables the show to establish its content offering in line with current industry issues.

I became Director of Service and Logistics activities at Philips Healthcare in September 2015. My experience covers a wide range of specialist areas in supply chain and services and I am in daily contact with the demands of our customers and our own standards of operational excellence and optimisation of our value chain (costs, quality, etc.).
