Hi, I am Juan,
certified Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt and founder of WAVE.
At WAVE; we can help you succeed in achieving your goals of business excellence.
I've lived 19 years in South America, 21 years in Germany and since a couple of years I have been living with my family on the beautiful Spanish coast, but working globally.
I started my professional career by completing an apprenticeship at Kühne & Nagel, where I studied international logistics / freight forwarding.
In 2000 I started working at American Express and after a short time, my manager decided to send me to a Lean Six Sigma training which changed my life and career forever. This methodology has become my passion and I decided to learn all about it.
I even travelled to Japan to experience the Toyota production system and to learn how they implemented these methods in their organization.
Since then, I have been continuously improving the Lean Six Sigma strategy for many organizations from various business sectors, such as in financial institutions, automotive industry, insurance companies, real estate, stock market, car leasing, consulting, IT, service industry and more.
Working for four large multinational companies, I've had the opportunity to carry out projects in different parts of the world and learn different deployment methods that best fit their culture and mindset.
I also spent many years in a well known consulting company, where I introduced the Lean Six Sigma methodology, certified consultants and offered our services in all European Countries.
Later, when I moved to BNP Paribas, I set up various departments, including Continuous Improvement, Innovation and CSR. A few years later I worked as their Chief Quality Officer, where I lead a cross-entity Business Excellence team.
From 2020, I have been fully devoted to WAVE - Business Excellence Footprint.
MY ASPIRATION IS TO MAKE WAVE BECOME THE MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY LEAN SIX SIGMA AND CSR COMPANY USING INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Environment is also a key priority for WAVE
In todays world, clients look for cooperation with companies that act responsibly towards the environment and our planet. This topic became very important to me in 2010, when I became the head of a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) team. We focused on sustainability projects and received very successful results. It opened my eyes to what we can do for the planet using the Lean Six Sigma methodology.
I was very proud to see that the company I worked for became a leading "green" company in the financial institutions sector and realized that the topic of sustainability is also important to the end-customer.
I would like to share best practices with all companies interested in contributing to the "wellbeing" of our planet.
If each one of us can collectively make an impact... imagine the impact we could have if all companies around the world decided to be more sustainable.
WAVE's ambition is to help companies achieve their CSR goals.
THE DECISIONS WE MAKE ARE A REFLECTION OF OUR VALUES
