DALLAS, TX - June 12, 2023 - o9 Solutions, the leading AI-powered integrated business planning platform, welcomes JJ Van Oosten, a seasoned executive with over two decades of experience in leading digital transformations for global brands.
JJ Van Oosten is an accomplished executive with over 20 years of experience in retail and CPG, having led and successfully delivered five large and complex digital transformations for established brands, including Tesco, Lego, Travis Perkins, Kingfisher plc, and Rewe-Group.
His approach involves identifying the best hypothesis, testing the new proposition in a multivariate way, and mobilizing the organization to scale and drive LFL. Throughout his career, he brought agility through cultural shifts by embracing new skills or coaching existing ones. He also ensured the Board and Exco level addressed data, products, and new ways of working to improve fluency, confidence, and belief in the deep tech transformation.
“We are very excited to welcome JJ Van Oosten to our Council,” said Chakri Gottemukkala, CEO of o9 Solutions. “His expertise in driving organizational change and delivering P/L and balance sheet value will be instrumental in our mission to enable global enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation.”
While at Kingfisher, JJ doubled e-commerce participation from 8% to 16% in just three years. He launched successful marketplaces, brought speed in delivery, and left a profound legacy in data science with deep commercial impact. JJ’s digital agenda encompasses in-depth organizational design, talent selection and growth, agile cultural changes, deep channel and customer profitability knowledge, and prudent capital allocation choices.
JJ also advises private equity clients on digital marketing, data science, e-commerce, technology, marketplaces, and M&A of start-ups.
“True omnichannel businesses require a real-time view of inventory, orders, and customers. This approach unlocks significant cash and profit and loss benefits when coupled with supply chain visibility and smart planning. With o9’s platform, companies can achieve this level of integration. The company relies on feedback from its prestigious executive council members to continually improve and evolve its platform based on key use cases. It’s quite unique.”
