Wipper to oversee division that provides precision manufacturing, product packaging, warehousing, distribution and global logistics
Paris (France) – August 2, 2023 – Vantiva (Euronext Paris: VANTI), formerly known as Technicolor, a global technology leader in the field of ultra-high-speed broadband connections, with a presence in 20 countries and over 5,300 employees worldwide, announced on Wednesday the appointment of Rob Wipper as the President of Supply Chain Solutions division (SCS).
Rob has spent more than 25 years of his career in high-volume, high-intensity manufacturing and logistics operations. Prior to this new position, he was Vantiva’s Senior Vice President of North America SCS operations.
“Rob is an expert in organizational transformation and an experienced leader,” said Luis Martinez-Amago, CEO of Vantiva. “He has consolidated his reputation within the company as a visionary leader, leveraging his expertise and strategic acumen to capitalize on Vantiva Supply Chain Solutions’ industrial know-how and application for new business opportunities. Rob is a passionate advocate for long-term customer relationships, while leading internal initiatives that empower employees, encourage collaboration and create opportunities for professional growth.”
The SCS division brings together the manufacturing of discs (CDs, DVDs, vinyls) and the supply chain. Vantiva has decades of expertise in the manufacturing, logistics and distribution of high-precision products. SCS provides services for major entertainment companies, including Disney, Universal, Sony and Paramount.
Over the past few decades, Vantiva has developed a strong and recognized logistics expertise, both for its upstream supply and for the service of its downstream customers. This expertise is a solid asset for Vantiva in the context of fluctuating global supply.
While known for their cutting-edge knowledge in optical discs, Vantiva has also built-up a strong expertise in microfluidics, a technique used to manipulate fluids on a micro- or nanometric scale, often incorporating magnetic or optical components.
Rob will be based in Memphis, Tennessee and will replace Bruno Roqueplo, who served as the interim president of SCS since March. Bruno will remain with the division until the end of 2023, as a strategic advisor to Rob. Vantiva welcomes his contribution to the continued growth and profitability of SCS.
“We are confident that, under Rob’s leadership, we will continue on the company’s path of transformation and success,” concludes Luis Martinez-Amago.
