Just wanted to send you a note expressing my appreciation over the past year. We have come a long way and could not have done any of this without your full support, guidance and direction you provided. I have become a better person and leader during this time and have you to thank for that. I know I speak for the entire SPE team as well as the other team members that supported and continue to support our endeavors! You brought courtesy, professionalism and spirit to our team that I have never seen before in my career and cannot thank you enough for that!

I often try to emulate your style as you are the truest gentleman I have met in Tyco. Emulation is the highest compliment that someone can give you. I will miss you and appreciate the support you provided during the time we worked together.

I was one of the lucky ones that could work with you in depth on a daily base and must confess I have never met a person like you doing the role with passion and managing your team in such a relaxing atmosphere ,but still with respect, to supply you with all you have ever requested. You were my the best boss ever and i learned a lot from you and would like to Thank you so much!

Thank you for being my leader and guiding me and team all the time. I truly value all the efforts you have done for us and for this company in a very short time with very very great results. Because of your extraordinary ability to lead us, you really are a brilliant leader!
I am sure that the company will miss all your expertise AND I will miss you as a great leader, mentor and supporter.
Jean-Luc, your legacy will remain here forever…..
Kaushik Patel, Supplier Performance Engineer
It has been an exciting year to work together with Jean-Luc. It is amazing to see a system build up from zero. Jean-Luc showed his professional knowledge, guidance skill and excellent project management in the whole process. I do believe that more companies and people will benefit from Jean-Luc’s consulting/coaching services.
China International Purchasing Office Leader
“It’s great to have the opportunity to work with an inspiring and strategic leader who also drives results, engendering team dedication and goal delivery, while continually encouraging and developing individuals.
This was my experience as Jean-Luc provided strategic direction to a new project team, enabling us to deliver an event that exceeded expectations and set up long-term opportunities for the enterprise.
We have also worked together on competency modeling for his direct team in a very successful partnership, where his level of business acumen combined with surprising depth of technical knowledge helped swiftly create a valid, collaborative and functional data set.
I am delighted to recommend Jean-Luc for his leadership and direction and look forward to continued collaboration.”
Louise Bright, Director, Client Solutions at Guidemark Health
I admire his passion for the work he does and the total dedication to his team and people who work for him.
Heike Geiss, Commodity Manager at Ingersoll Rand
I had joined a Development Program previously for Ingersoll Rand, which took the form of different cross functional assignments in various countries. It was during this stage of my career I began to work with Jean-Luc when I was located in Brussels, as part of the Strategic Procurement Team. Working with Jean-Luc was a great experience and something that benefited me during my career and to this day.
The process of systematically reviewing a problem, identifying areas for improvement and most importantly how to sell this idea / proposal / solution to our own team members or indeed cross functional partners, was something Jean-Luc mentored many of our team on. Giving ownership and responsibility to the group, including younger members like myself at that time, was his strong point and I use this “sales man” approach to this day.
I look back on that stage of my career and specifically with Managers like Jean-Luc with appreciation, and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
