“Combined, Anne and I possess more than 50 years of experience in numerous countries across three continents,” said Schilly. “We’re excited to share our deep understanding of manufacturing and technology advancements, global supply chain management, sales performance and multinational business environments.”

“Yannick and I are both French natives who spent our careers building trans-Atlantic partnerships and supporting international commerce,” said Cappel. “We’re confident we can offer manufacturers incredible value with our expertise and strong alliances more efficiently than larger firms.”

Schilly began his career with Festo, a German-based, global leader in advanced automation technology, managing industrial engineering at its German Global Production Centre for 15 years. He then spent five years in China, growing operations through the post M&A integration of a Chinese company.

Schilly’s work spans production management, industrial engineering, new product development, logistics and supply chain, and sales and operations across multiple industries, including automotive, food and beverage, packaging, automation, electronics and machine builders. In his most recent role as COO, he led construction of Festo’s $60-million smart factory in Mason, Ohio, and relocation of North American supply chain operations there.

Cappel brings an extensive trans-Atlantic business network and understanding of American and European cultural and economic climates. Through work at the EACC, she gained valuable insights into how global companies can manage international growth.

“The global economy is doing well, and long-term, macro-economic trends are supported by population growth and a pace of innovation humankind has never seen before,” said Schilly. “We want to support the current administration’s focus on bringing manufacturing back to the U.S. by redesigning clusters of manufacturing ecosystems to compete with emerging markets and industry champions in Europe and Asia.”
