Combined with Industrial experience and qualifications covering Science, Management, Marketing and Technology Entrepreneurship I am well placed to function as a team player who takes great pride in delivering agreed targets.
I am particularly interested in roles where I can apply my experience, knowledge and personal traits to make significant contributions to business growth.
The focus of my previous roles has been business growth: developing new products for the product portfolio, developing operating / management systems to support the growing business, developing the business for growth. This has taken place in technology led environments operating to ISO 9000, GMP and FDA standards. Having worked in small & growing organisations for 26 years, I am well accustomed to the need for a hands on flexible approach and pro-actively seek out opportunities to ‘grow with the organisation’.
