After I finished my thesis I worked as a Project Leader / Study Director at Intervet International for many years on the development / improvement of veterinary vaccines. During this time I developed several skills in the fields of research and people management. Thereafter, I became Head of the Microbiology Laboratory at Enschede and learned to manage and coach a large group of scientific personnel. As a Quality Consultant I accompanied several (starting) companies with the implementation of GLP / GMP and supported the writing of the instruction manuals (SOP’s).
As Director / Quality Officer / Quality Consultant I managed to obtain all Dutch Hospitals, Clinical -, Microbiological - and Pathological Laboratories and almost all Intensive Cares for Thrombotic patients as a client for my company to deliver boxes approved for the transport of primary human and veterinary (blood)samples according to the European Guidelines.
During the first year as owner of my own company I taught Chemistry and Physics at the secondary School of Twents Carmel College, location Lyceumstraat at Oldenzaal; it was a time I enjoyed very much.
A vacant position gives me the opportunity to make my medical knowledge, computer skills, teaching capabilities and large experience in custom relations and presentations available to consolidate your company.
Detailed personally information you will find in my Curriculum Vitae, but who I am as a person and in my contact with co-workers and customers and how I handle my energy and immunity to stress, I would like to illuminate in a personal conversation.
