I seek a senior role in a sector where service is the main differentiator. I lead individuals and teams (large and small) to growth through my lively personality and management style. I enjoy challenging situations, am competitive by nature, and am normally focused on profitable growth and a wide scope of operations. I can take tough decisions when they have to be made, but can be pragmatic when needs demand. I prefer to engage my audience and have them follow willingly, rather than push them along a path of high resistance. I don’t give in easily, but neither do I become stubborn when the battle is already lost. I have led some big, strong teams and love a challenge.
