Romeu Zema Neto, CEO

Processes that once accommodated 30 to 40 stores were no longer efficient. Working with Proudfoot on our ‘ground floor’ showed us that it was possible to not only simplify many of our day-to-day activities, but to also plan and expedite them.

Jean-Claude Sénèque, Senior Vice President

Air France gave added impetus to the issue of workplace safety with a pilot programme launched at Orly International Airport to coach its ground staff. With work-related accidents on the runway down by 50% during this period, results are very encouraging for Orly.

David Dealy, Vice President of Transportation

Our engagement with Proudfoot has been one of the most significant undertakings BNSF has ever accomplished.

Kevin Abbott, Chief Executive Officer

One of the most valuable aspects of the project was how well the joint Proudfoot and Alpha teams worked together to identify and successfully implement the changes needed. What impressed me most of all is the resulting empowerment. The strong team spirit combined with the skills taught have enabled us to sustain the change. Proudfoot contributed significantly in making this a much better business.
