I am an operations focussed general manager with a successful track record of growing people and resources in line with business needs. With an open, collaborative and supporting attitude, I succeeded in building strong teams with strong individuals. Through curiosity, insight and respect for technology and its workers, innovation and improvement have put my plant on top of the deck.

Past Experience

  • General Manager
    January 2003 --- June 2015
    As a facility general manager in a global organization I consistently demonstrated the facility's commitment to deliver and improve, both towards customers and management, with a succesful track record as a consequence.

  • General Director
    January 1998 --- January 2003
    After restoring a respectful relationship between management and operators, I developed a high added value recycling activity for zinc alloy ashes and I drastically improved equipment performance on zinc sheet recycling.

  • Head of Quality Control Department
    January 1992 --- January 1996
    In a rather administrative environment, with a turbulent social relations history, I succeeded in restoring respectful relationships and a "we must deliver" mindset.
