Orgalim appoints Olivier Janin as Deputy Director General
4 April 2022
Olivier Janin, previously Director of the Orgalim Partnership department, has been appointed Deputy Director General of Orgalim, effective 4 April 2022.
This is a new position, which will have full operational and financial responsibility for Orgalim’s service and publications businesses – representing half of the organisation’s turnover. The Deputy DG will also foster Orgalim’s work culture, and will deputise for the DG as needed.
During his past 7 years as Director of the Orgalim Partnership, Olivier has led a highly successful team of professionals providing tailored services across a diverse spectrum of technology sectors, ranging from monitoring to advocacy, association management, strategy and support. Under his leadership, revenues have grown by more than a third with many partner sectors developing their strategic influence and the Orgalim network consolidating its strength. He has also acted as Secretary General for several European sector associations, including the European Materials Handling Federation FEM, a role which he retains today.
Olivier has demonstrated his leadership credentials during the past years. With his new responsibilities, he will be an even bigger asset to Orgalim and our industries as we continue to focus on delivering impact for the members and clients we represent.
Olivier brings a wealth of experience in EU policy making, a deep understanding of Orgalim’s industries, and a proven record in managing successful teams. Commenting on his appointment as Deputy Director General, Olivier Janin says: "I am grateful for the trust placed in me and I am looking forward to enhancing my strategic contribution to Orgalim in this new role".
"The creation of this new position in Orgalim will support the strategic objectives defined by the Board of Directors and the Director General. Olivier is the perfect fit for this role, and I am looking forward to working closely with him", says Jaakko Hirvola, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Orgalim
