TLS Medical in France is managed by Blanchard Nitoumbi. He is in charge of the biomedical sector of the TeroLab Surface Group. The company specialises in coatings for orthopaedic implants.
When did you take up the post of managing director of TLS Medical, the French subsidiary of the TeroLab Surface Group?
I took up the post of managing director of TLS Medical on 04/07/2016. This is rather strange for me as I must admit that I had already worked for the company from 1987 to 1999 and had held various posts up to Management Assistant.
What objectives or strategies are you pursuing with TLS Medical?
The objectives are primarily to ensure sustainability of the activities, preservation of jobs, development of employees in the performance of their respective roles and of course the profitability of the sector.
The strategies that are close to my heart are the consolidation of our client portfolio, a sustainable and beneficial partnership for all parties and a leading position in the biomedical sector in France, Europe and throughout the world.
What are your current projects?
We currently have many projects in the pipeline. They will enable us to grow fairly quickly over the next 3 years and create many jobs.
What is your personal recipe for success?
My personal recipe for success is based on enormous confidence in my achievements, enormous respect for our clients, good employee relations and the ability to follow through with my ideas.
How do you relax in the evenings and at weekends?
At weekends, I usually tend my plants and flowers. I like doing DIY and design too. I occasionally go for walks. Computer programming also helps me relax.
