Meet the Deputy Manager of the industrial demonstration plant, BioDémo
On the BioDémo Plant, I'm in charge of examining and managing new projects, and the defining human and technical resources required for them. This means I work on two complementary aspects of successful projects:
If certain projects require specific works, I am also in charge of monitoring the works.
Following a BTS with an internship in a pharmaceutical laboratory (microbiology quality control department), I was first hired in 2002 as a production technician for Soliance, a subsidiary of ARD until June 2014. I soon rose up the ranks to team leader.
In 2009, ARD started preliminary trials on the new biotechnology demonstration plant. That's when I was offered the position of experimental coordinator. It was a great opportunity, which I immediately seized. I was then promoted to technical manager, then deputy production manager, which is still my current role.
I love working as part of the team, being able to talk to and debrief with my colleagues. That's probably why I was driven to a role in management. Working closely with others allows you to work confidently in the best conditions.
I am curious and very committed to my work. I am always trying to improve and learn new things. That's why I really appreciate being able to follow the various training courses that ARD provides. They are highly motivating and allow me to both develop my skills as well as learn about complementary areas of expertise.
It is also the complementarity and proximity between Soliance and ARD that allowed me to transfer quite easily from one company to the other. But that wouldn't have been possible without the trust ARD placed in me, which now allows me to be fulfilled in my work.
