I am seeking a position as Head Human Resources in a smaller company or a leadership position (e.g. Head HR Business Partner, Member of the HR Executive Committee) in a medium sized company, either a independent firm or a subsidiary of an international group. Although I have worked many years in the financial sector, I am open for other industries. In fact, my specific experiences are more in information technology, research, marketing, legal & compliance et cetera than banking. However, I have a proven track record of fast learning and quick adaptation in new cultures.
