January 2, 2024, Robert-Jan managed Henk-Jan directly
This is a letter of recommendation for Henk-Jan Engelhardt, who served as an interim manager contributing to Teijin Aramid’s business transformation program from February 2022 to December 2023. Throughout this period, I held the position of Global Process Business Owner for Logistics, with Henk-Jan reporting directly to me.
Teijin Aramid is a global leader in aramid production, 18 locations worldwide, 1.750 FTE.
Henk-Jan first led the development and launch of a collaborative platform, enhancing purchasing, logistics and quality data exchange with Teijin’s external production partners. As a result, the portal is now operational in multiple countries, fostering improved collaboration.
Secondly, Henk-Jan assisted with the migration to SAP S/4 HANA and introducing Transport Management, scanning, and self-billing at our main own production facility. Additionally, carriers end warehouses are connected to S/4 HANA via interfaces. As a result our main site works according our global, standard end to end processes and agile system landscape.
Change management played a pivotal role in the successful execution of the assignment.
I confidently recommend Henk-Jan for future interim roles.
