Published on

I can bring tremendous value to your company. This has always been the case because of my ability to become technically and commercially related to a product's design, form, fit and function.

Based on my broad participation and experiences in managing the technical and commercial events associated in: consumer products for sanitary plumbing/faucets and architectural security hardware for (cosmetic) door locks, aero space fluid filtration, on highway and off highway: automotive, agricultural, construction, mobile crane equipment, power train, drive train, engines and engine dress ups, high voltage circuit switch gear protection equipment and the electromechanical power systems and sub systems and gear boxes for renewable energy for wind turbines, I have always been able to research, discover, integrate and implement innovation and technology to produce exceptional results in equipment, cost reductions and services that delighted my customers, both internal and external.

I have documented achievements in transforming ambiguity and translating it and other information into workable strategies. This is a complex process that requires skill, dedication, teamwork as well as creativity. Significant achievements and break through results are consistently produced based on applying the disciplines of classical process engineering, process mapping and process development.
