I am a mechanical engineer with strong managerial skills and more than ten years’ experience in the oil industry. As manager of some of the biggest oil storage facilities in Greece, I manage a budget of €10 million and lead a varied team of 60 professionals. I am also responsible for liaising with the State Authorities to ensure that the company’s operational procedures comply with the applicable European Union legislation, and that all actions to renew existing licenses or to fulfil new legal requirements are taken on time.
I have a first-hand appreciation of the environmental challenges and safety hazards of the industry, to which I have responded by following the highest international standards of operations, using all relevant project management tools, risk assessment and management processes. In addition, I represent my company at the oil terminals committee of the Greek oil industry association SEEPE. In this capacity, I strive to build stakeholder consensus and promote best practices in the oil industry. The Association informs its members of proposed changes in legislation, contributes with expert advice to the industry consultation process and serves as a liaison with the ministry in cases where industry’s issues need to be addressed.
Throughout my career, my strong communication skills have allowed me to carry through challenging projects, including radical organizational change initiatives. I consider my people coaching skills and “lead by example” style of management among my strongest assets. My attention to detail without losing sight of the big picture has enabled me to ensure that key policies are followed by all involved parties, be it safety guidelines or quality requirements. To that end, I find my international experience as a member of a small global team of consultants for Air BP of particular relevance, as it has trained me well to address work ethic and cultural issues.
I am certain that my experience will enrich your team of experts with a fresh eye, while my skills will add a strong managerial toolset to company. Hence, I look forward to hearing from you in order to explore together my career prospects.
