As a Plant & Equipment Director expert with industry leading knowledge in site installations and energy production equipment, I’ve demonstrated in Africa and Asia both technical and softer skills that have allowed me to develop strong relationships and highly capable internal teams.
Quality is my watchword and I have continually demonstrated this on a range of technical base and projects without jeopardizing tight cost plans.
The grounding received on a complex range of projects in Africa and Asia has served me well and I’m now utilizing that experience on the critical works I’m undertaking.

Furthermore, client inter-faces in the oil industry and national government have allowed me to develop a firm understanding of the pressures clients face and the responses needed for my team and me.
I have been praised by all the clients for my energy, enthusiasm, understanding of their needs, as well as for my innovation.
I am now a highly valued Director for plant & equipment sharing my vast experience with the local staff in remote Cameroon whilst delivering key infrastructure across the country.

While managing an extensive local workforce working across a range of critical technical infrastructure, I have developed work programs and trainings for local staff. The challenge has been to establish this base quickly without compromising the quality of equipment delivery for the projects. This was a critical measure of success for the client and Vinci’s reputation in the country.
Given the nature of the industry, safety was of paramount importance; I was adept at both pro-active prevention and quick effective responses to mitigate risks.

As a contract manager in Angola, I had overall responsibility for all facilities management and production energy for TOTAL (including housing, offices, technical base) and supporting infrastructure. I managed and exceeded client expectations through strong delivery, particularly in the tricky field of tertiary maintenance. This was achieved by developing controls, regular pre-planned maintenance, and clear visibility to all relevant parties of issues and quality solutions that didn’t jeopardize the clients cost structure.

Over the last two decades, I have also acquired a great experience that allowed me to obtain many times the certification in terms of quality systems implementation (ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001).
