I am a chemical engineer who combines a strong technical background with the experience of working in a multicultural international environment.
I had operational and project responsibilities and I built a sterile manufacturing site from a green field up to a running plant.
My strengths are a broad pharmaceutic technology knowledge, thorough understanding of GMP and regulatory demands, multicultural interest, ability to manage and motivate people under high workload conditions and tight deadlines, conceptual and results driven thinking.
My career objectives are an optimal contribution in an engineering/production management position in an international company by levering my pharmaceutical and multicultural experience.
Preferred functions are sterile manufacturing/cleanrooms focused or pharmaceutics in general in different disciplines like Product Support / Process & Equipment / Technology Transfer / Commissioning & Validation / Project Engineering / Consultancy. Examples are: Production Manager, Engineering Manager, Validation Manager, Project Manager, Consultant.
