AN OUTSTANDING CAREER PATH: FROM V.I.E. TO COUNTRY DIRECTOR FOR SAUDEQUIP

Cédric Fernandez joined JA Delmas in 1999 as part of a V.I.E. program in Burkina Faso. With his specialization in both project management and trade (a recent graduate of industrial business engineering), he spent four years in Mali to expand his knowledge in the field and learn more about products, customers and their expectations.

Confident that one can grow and develop new skills within JA Delmas, Cedric was rapidly appointed Head of the Energy & Transportation Business Unit, and became a member of the Board of Directors in 2012. Since 2019, he has been Country Director with Saudequip, a company that is a member of our Network in Senegal.

I discovered the world of Energy and JA Delmas through my V.I.E. and wanted to develop my career and fully pursue my two passions: 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 the future key representatives of our customers in Africa.

Promoting our products and services, monitoring and optimizing the after-sales service are some of the skills acquired during the training organized into theory-based technical courses and general courses, supplemented by a practical experience undertaken during assignments in West Africa.

The experiment being a success, we have decided to broaden the scope of the Graduate Program to recruit future managers for our entire African network in seven key areas:

  • Sales
  • After-sales
  • Logistics
  • Technical engineering
  • Audits
  • Human resources
  • I.T.
