  • Restructuring of operations within a “new” company (that had just been created as a result of two mergers), in France and some other European countries, with focus on growth and improved profitability;
  • Restructuring a service business, leading them back to profit through reduction of activities and profound change in the Go2Market model. Reorganization of its technical and production resources.
