Benoit is director of Nexans University. His experience, his curiosity and his interest for people development drove him to create a Corporate University for Nexans in 2007 which got the bronze GCCU Award for innovation in 2013. After business studies, Benoit started his career in finance as controller and finance manager for 10 years. He then went through various positions in Operations, Sales & Marketing, Purchasing and run Business in Denmark. His experience was mainly in multinational Groups but in all sorts of activities from services to manufacturing and in all sizes of entities, corporate and business. This broad experience brings the specific “touch” of the Nexans University : create links between people, functions and cultures and explain them to each other through short learning & development experiences. The next challenge for Nexans University is to embark all the Nexans employees in a continuous improvement culture to transform the Group in a learning company. Started 3 years ago with the beginning of the recovery plan of the Group, this journey is entering in a new ambitious phase for the 3 coming years, supporting people’s development in their soft skills in order to work better together. Build knowledge, share knowledge, develop together, Nexans University is exploring the best way to use digital in order to make this happen in the most cost efficient way.
