Passionate about competitiveness and innovation, I have been leading large companies and SMEs to radical cost reductions and customer value enhancement for over 30 years.
I have long believed in the importance of teamwork.
I am always amazed by the strong expertise and specialised know-how that we can find in all sectors of activity, but I cannot bring myself to see them working so imperfectly together in so many projects.
I am also convinced that simple methods are the key to efficiency, both in terms of competitiveness and innovation.
AROLYS consultants share these passions and the values of simplicity and pragmatism.
Our two-man operation guarantees unparalleled efficiency.
We take our clients beyond the gains they thought were achievable by transforming the corporate culture in a very concrete way.
