AN OUTSTANDING CAREER PATH: FROM V.I.E. TO THE BOARD OR DIRECTORS
Cédric Fernandez joined JA Delmas in 1999 as part of a V.I.E. program in Burkina Faso. Specialized in both project management and trade (graduate in Engineering and Industrial Business), he spent 4 years in Mali to deepen his field knowledge and learn all about products, customers and their expectations. Confident that one can grow and develop new skills within the JA Delmas network, Cedric was rapidly appointed Head of the Energy & Transportation Business Unit, and became a member of the Board of Directors in 2012.
“I discovered the world of Power Systems and JA Delmas through my V.I.E. and felt like following my career path within the network to live fully both passions of mine: Energy and Africa.”
THE JA DELMAS GRADUATE PROGRAM
Since 2009, we have been developing the Graduate Program aimed at our young engineers. This remunerated training scheme, over a period of 8 to 12 months, aims to train our privileged future representatives to our customers in Africa.
Promoting our products and services, monitoring and optimizing the after-sales service, these are the skills acquired during the training which focuses on technical and general academic courses, supplemented by a practical application undertaken during assignments in West Africa.
The experiment being a success, we decided to broaden the scope of the Graduate Program to recruit future managers for our entire African network in 7 key areas:
- Technical engineering
- Human resources
