Experienced Project Manager

I have developed a solid career, ultimately specializing in Project Management (i.e. Business Support, vendor management, finance, PMO in a number of business areas environments), I have developed valuable management and leadership skills. My achievements are clearly because of the relentless commitment I have given to my employer, and to myself. This, too, has resulted in recognition and development. I am a skilled manager with over 10 years’ experience in managing production output, delivery projects and resolving operational problems. A resourceful problem solver, an excellent track record of effectively meeting demanding objectives under severe time and manpower constraints. I can offer expertise and results in such representative area as: managing projects, day-to-day operations with bottom-line responsibility for performance and profitability. I am a well-organized, highly adaptable individual with the ability to win cooperation from people at all levels.

Been involved in PMO implementation and resolving operational problems for large corporate and start-up companies in the Professional Services, Media, Oil and Gas industries and a Renewable Energy IPP.

My project management expertise spans across various industry sectors. Having been exposed to different industry sectors, my skill set encompasses a wide spectrum of what the industry requires from a project manager which includes project conception and initiation, project definition and planning, project execution, project performance and control and finally successful project closure.
