Career Profile

Alert and outspoken, able to see fatal flaws in a proposal or solution but often (enjoy) argue(ing) on either side of an issue from a position of the ‘devils advocate’. Have an urge for lifelong learning and combine my organisational qualities with commercial aptitude. Keep both long- and short term objectives clear in mind. Always see room for improvement. Strong problem solver. My insight profile characterizes me as a frank, honest and straightforward leader. Strong-willed, not to be blown of course. Bold and energetic, driving myself and others to achieve results (red).
