About me:

A driven qualified engineer with experience in railway asset- and project management and with extensive experience on senior management level within a large and diverse environment. I have a proven track record of successfully managing a large, multi-disciplinary department on one of the most prominent heavy haul freight transport railway lines in South Africa. My strengths lie in strategy, leadership and my advanced technical knowledge of engineering. Previous experience within a consulting engineering environment contributed to my in-depth understanding of engineering design and projects management.
