Pauline Le BorgneGeneral Manager at Cetim - Matcor Technology & Services

I have been working at Cetim since 2011. I am currently General Manager at Cetim Matcor, the Singapourean subsidiary of Cetim Group.
Cetim Matcor is a leading specialist in the fields of Failure Analysis, Forensic Engineering, Materials & Corrosion and Asset Integrity Management. It is also the APAC center of excellence of Cetim Group and brings locally the support that industry (French & local) needs regarding mechanical issues.

As General Manager, I lead the Operations (labs engineers and technicians, on site inspectors, engineers and PhD, etc.), R&D and business development activities (Turnover: M$6/year). I define with the teams and Cetim HQ our technical roadmap of services to industry and the successful strategy (R&D, Hire, Training, investments) to achieve our growth objectives as I am also in charge of the company's P&L. I therefore divide my time between technical project management, leading multi-business teams, customer and partnerships as well as the management of technical teams. Our activities a not only dedicated to Singaporean area, but for the all APAC region.

Before that, I was leading our metal additive manufacturing activities. These activities were spread over 3 sites and count 20 people as well as numerous process test resources on physical platforms. I was also responsible for the deployment of the Cetim Group's activities in the field of additive manufacturing. I led business activities, R&D and investment over 6 sites concerned (Turnover: 9M€/year). One of my best achivement was the Saclay R&D platform and its activities, which I led for 5 years (CAPEX: €3.9M, OPEX: €3.5M/year). Its creation first allowed me to validate my skills in complex project management (multi-partner, multi-skills, multi-funding) by setting up and managing a consortium R&D platform and leading its decision-making bodies. I was also able to acquire legal knowledge by leading the drafting of the consortium agreement and project contracts

Between 2011 & 2015, I also held the position of product (re)design project manager at Cetim for SMEs and large groups allowing me to address various areas of expertise (chemical and mechanical assembly, metallic materials, polymers and composites, surface treatment).
So far I could carry out my various missions and responsibilities within the framework of actions for industrialists in various mechanical fields ((offshore wind turbines, Oil and Gas, Energy, Maritime, agricultural machinery, aeronautics, aerospace, fashion and luxury, etc.), which represents one of the great interests of being an engineer at Cetim.
