About me

I am a high energy Procurement Professional with over 20 years progressive experience within the Manufacturing, Engineering, Automotive, Packaging and Public Sector. The personal qualities that I will bring to any position are dedication, commitment, loyalty & a strong teamwork ethic. I lead by example & place a heavy emphasis on attention to detail & ensuring that the customer’s needs are met every time.

Being the best means putting in the hard yards & I take pride in instilling this work ethic in all subordinates that report to me. I believe in fairness & respect to all parties no matter what the person’s position. I have an opendoor policy when it comes to resolving issues of a personal nature. By the same token, I am not afraid to make decisions that are not always favorable to the shop floor so long as it is always in the company’s best interests.

I also bring to the table, a background of working in an elite Bell Equipment Supplier Development Team that was tasked with auditing & the levelling of suppliers to world class manufacturing standards. I possess strong technical knowhow that are complimented by Hard and Soft Skills. I also possess an impressive track record in the manufacturing environment covering strategic planning, project management and systems engineering strategies. My proven ability to successfully analyze an organization’s requirements, identify deficiencies and potential opportunities, and thereafter develop innovative and cost-effective solutions for enhancing competitiveness thus increasing revenue and customer service offerings.

Good business appreciation and vision, a collaborative approach with strong leadership and communication skills make me an effective team builder who is tactically astute in managing complex supply and demand requirements for today’ diverse manufacturing plants.
