About Jhes Consultancy..
Along the principles of Procurement and Supply Chain I believe there is a solution for each organisation at any stage.
In a collaborative spirit a lot can be achieved; individuals, teams, departments and even companies can be connected to create solutions that are better for all involved.
It is in my intrinsic interest and nature to listen and observe, and to approach people with respect, without compromising to the goals and the commercials. And deliver what is required.
Being an engineer by trade I operate well in a technical environment, where people are eager to create and construct.
Connecting people, technology and commercials, that's what I'm good at.
Prior to starting Jhes Consultancy I have fulfilled various roles within the Heerema Group for 19 years. I started as an engineer and after a few years I enjoyed and learned about Procurement and Supply Chain. My roles were both project and line related. Such as Subcontract Coordinator, Section Head Purchasing, Supply Chain Manager, Category Manager, Line Manager, VP Supply Chain a.i. and Manager EPC services, leading the full EPC Supply Chain Group.

The juggler on the homepage mastering his art, with a clear horizon on the background, has much similarity with my view on Procurement and Supply Chain and what Jhes stands for.
It’s all about focus, only if you’re focussed you can be succesfull at juggling. This closely relates to Procurement and Supply Chain: Focus on the right sequence of things is essential, when it comes to introducing changes, negotations or each step in the supply chain.
The course of the ball is well planned in the juggler's mind, but the actual movement will differ from his plan. The juggler needs to rapidly respond to the ball movement, similar to how Procurement and Supply Chain need to respond to dynamics, with sufficient space to move.
Learning to juggle requires patience and perseverance. Only after a while you’ll get the feel of the physics and your own motor skills. Much alike Procurement and Supply Chain processes, individuals and teams. It isn’t easy, but with perseverance you’ll succeed.
And just as important, for both applies: Mastering it is fun!
