Skills & Capabilities
I am a people focused leader who loves building high performing teams. I don't ask anything of my people that I don't already give.
I have extensive Design, Engineering, Product & Project Management experience. I create new products and manage them through to market.
As a leader, I make hundreds of decisions every week that effect a great many people professionally and financially.
As an engineer, I create products, solve problems and manage projects, internally and for clients.
As an operations manager, I send people to remote locations to do difficult work in tight timeframes and under heavy commercial pressure.
I often get called when things are bad, everything is burning down (sometimes literally) and people need a leader who can plan and execute.
