Summary

Successful companies are those that are not just quick to react to current market changes, but are also proactive in their efforts to forecast and position themselves for long-term success in ever-changing markets. I partner with CXOs and BODs to design and execute short- and long-term financial strategies aligned with business goals.

With 15+ years in financial leadership, and a success record in solving complex operational and business problems, I am well equipped to help companies (manufacturing, engineering, technology, and aviation) achieve financial transparency, drive top- and bottom-line growth and profitability, and build compliance-driven organisations.
