I have been passionate since teenage years about aviation which I have pursued as a hobby ever since. It has taught me about the essence of leadership, trust, team work and the need to adapt quickly to the unexpected. I have successfully applied these principles in the various executive roles that I have held within the large multinational companies durng my professional career.  I am customer oriented and I enjoy active engagement with clients. I like new challenges and can develop new solutions while safeguarding the shareholder interests. I am passionate about what I do and I drive for success, regardless of credits. I can link all the essential aspects of successful business from sales, customer management, operational executions, planning ,controlling and financial results. I actively engage in finding and foster new talents which I believe is a key role of leaders
