With over 11 years of experience in the railway and mining industries, my goal is to leverage my technical expertise and sales skills to develop and execute a strategy for growth. I have a proven track record in all stages of sales process, from up-front business development, developing winning technical proposals, presenting solutions to customers, and closing deals. I have strong communication and networking skills and am confident in delivering pitches to customers, and delivering technical papers. 

From an engineering perspective, I have an advanced understanding of railroad technologies and systems (PTC, CBTC, ETCS), with a thorough knowledge of the entire engineering process - from tendering through to commissioning. I have worked across the whole life-cycle of railway projects; from study, concept design, system specification, design, delivery, preparation of technical proposals and estimates, verification and validation, to testing and commissioning.
