Our Expertise / Team Profiles

Jeremy Praud

Managing Director

Jeremy has 20+ years’ experience of working with manufacturers to improve productivity. Having started his first graduate role in the paper industry, 2 short years later the Mill was slated for closure – it was this experience that made him resolve to understand exactly what it takes to help a factory survive, and indeed thrive. His passion is breaking through what limits the thinking in manufacturers about what they can achieve.

Instrumental to the growth of LI Europe, he has a long track record of delivering successful improvement; above expectations both in terms of bottom line results, and sustained change.
