Summary

I have both Storekeeping & Stock Control, Warehouse Management and Operation Management qualification. I have worked in many different industries including B2B and B2C products. I had a staff complement of 24 reporting to me and was responsible for R380 Million rand worth of stock.
I have also managed both the raw material and finished goods stores for manufacturing companies. I also manage the Dispatch of all goods to customers and branches country wide and both imports and exports.
I am a hands-on mature team player and I believe I would excel in this role as Warehouse Manager due to my qualifications and extensive experience within the Supply Chain field. I believe in continues improvement and training of staff to ensure that the warehouse stay up to date with market trends and to improve productivity.
My strong points are organisational skills and planning. My believe is that everything should be in place and that the work is not complete until the documentation is done correctly. Having good people skills also makes me a good leader as I believe in leading by example.
Some of my achievements are:
 Design of maize Mill factory for Angola – Angoway Logistics
 Design and commissioning of container conversions for Angola – Angoway Logistics (clinics, pharmacies, schools)
 Start-up of new warehouse at Hitachi Construction Machinery Africa
 Warehouse storage design – Hitachi Construction Machinery ( DC, Zambia and Mozambique)
 Implementation of scanning system – Hitachi Construction Machinery Africa
 Reducing discrepancies from 12.8% (R 180 mil) to 0.28% (R 350 mil) in 18 months

I enjoy working with both internal and external stakeholders in building key relationships.
