I am a family man with two children; one girl and one boy. I have been with my wife for 10 years and we live in Essex. I am extremely self-motivated and determined to build a successful career.
I am an experienced business trouble shooter with over 15 years experience working with businesses of varying sizes and cultures from formal global Fortune 500 Companies to informal small businesses in the Outdoor Pursuits industry.
I have 17 years experience in; Supply Chain, Procurement, Business Development, Operations Management, Stock Control, Negotiating and Auditing. I know how to get the best out of people, how to develop them and I know how to improve business efficiency and turnover.
I thrive under pressure and I feel people come to me for direction and assistance during difficult times. Throughout my career I have had to analysis various pieces of data and I have used graphs and pivot tables to summarise and present my findings. I have exceptional communication skills and I am easily able to relate to people of all levels and of different cultures.
I understand that developing and maintaining close relationships with vendors and suppliers win and grow business. I have proven that I am more than capable of making decisions during critical times. I evaluate the information available to hand and determine the likely outcomes on the various actions taken. I pride myself in being able to make these decisions when others have been known to be indecisive.
I am very well organised and pride myself on this quality. I believe that organisation is a vital key to success. I am very good at prioritising my work and I excel in time management. I always meet deadlines due to my organisation skills. I am a firm believer of “Failing to prepare, is preparing to fail”.
