I have had a rewarding career spanning engineering, airports, manufacturing and mining industries, with extensive experience in management positions and electrical engineering and manufacturing functions.

My strength is communication and the ability to empower and create vision in my team. Leading teams locally or remotely and directing change and improvement through culture change and continuous improvement methodologies.

I have completed my MBA and have qualifications in Engineering, Business, LEAN and Six Sigma.
