AIMS International is excited to announce the appointment of Olivier Legrand as our new Global Automotive & Mobility Practice leader.

After 6 years of successfully driving the Global Automotive & Mobility Practice, Alexander Müller has decided to step down from his global role and Olivier Legrand has been officially appointed as his successor.

“I am proud of the successes we have had with the team over the last years, establishing AIMS International as a recognised partner for the industry, helping our customers to be ahead of the curve in a changing market. I am also delighted to hand over to Olivier and am convinced of his capacity to carry on the good work with the team”, Alexander said.

Olivier has broad knowledge and thorough understanding of the Automotive Industry, which he  acquired with more than 15 years of experience as a global OEM leader. He initially drove the EMEA and LATAM Aftermarket Brands and Products, thereafter he spent his time supporting strategic acquisitions for EMEA Business Development and finally ran the entire EMEA Aftermarket operation.

A few years ago, Olivier took on the challenge of starting his own consulting business.  He spent two years helping Automotive companies reshape their strategies, business models, organisations and acquiring and integrating businesses before joining AIMS International as Managing Partner AIMS Belgium.

Olivier was born in Calais in the Northern part of France and studied in Dunkerque, Bordeaux and Grenoble graduating from Business school in 1996. Thereafter, Olivier settled in Belgium.

Olivier’s greatest strength is his ability to understand business challenges and truly partner with his clients, finding options that will answer today’s needs, but also help build the future.

“The Automotive Industry is making its revolution striving for long term sustainability, adjusting to consumers’ changing needs, leveraging Digitalisation and Artificial Intelligence to improve services and processes – so in the end, businesses. More than ever, organisations will need to be agile, to develop talents and to attract new ones bringing in new competencies that will help to make this revolution complete and successful”, he says.

The AIMS International Global Automotive & Mobility Practice understands where the industry stands and where it is heading, it is a great honour to take over from Alexander and to work with this group of talented professionals having an in-depth understanding of their local markets in order to offer our customers the best global support.”
