I also worked for “Donaldson Filtration” in the Africa exports and business development division, reporting directly to the Country manager whom was based in Belgium, before “Donaldson” I was a “Senior Technical Sales and Project Manager” for “Ernest Low (ELCO)”. I also worked at “Bearing Man Group (BMG)” as a “Technical Sales Manager & Fault-finding Technician”. I have experience in managing internal as well as external workforces.
