As a seasoned commercial executive with over 18 years’ experience I have accumulated a wealth of operational experience across highly competitive and specialist businesses. I offer the shareholder maximum bang for buck, providing a leader who immerses himself into a business and then focuses on business turnaround. I have extensive experience in working across all business functionalities from finance to customer management. It is this ability to be highly analytical but at the same time operationally astute that ensures I streamline the businesses I run and create highly efficient and profitable businesses in short periods of time. I am highly adaptable and able to work within corporate cultures with diverse teams of staff with technical specialties. My track record speaks for itself and in my most recent role at OutSource Packaging, I managed to bring about profitable results within a 12-month period. I have strong client facing skills and am involved in developing new products into new markets to the benefit of the companies I run. In short I am a driven commercial specialist well suited to MD and CEO roles that require an individual who will bring about maximum shareholder value in the shortest time possible with limited resources.
Business Acumen and Customer Centricity. Perceive impact and implications of decisions within other departments at the organisation. Understand the key business issues affecting the profitability and growth of an organisation. Identify and provide solutions to address customer needs.
Business Turnaround. The ability to analyse the greater business entity, as well as internal departments, with a focus on unlocking working capital. Creating business objectives to enable a business turnaround and improvement which meets strategic initiatives, allowing the greater leadership team to meet their commercial goals.
Strategy& Planning. Open to new ideas and experiences, able to connect current micro and macro trends to an organisation and formulate strategies to adapt or incorporate applicable trends. High intelligence combined with a big picture thinker attitude, I am able to conceptualize the big picture opportunities and challenges and understand the key levers and proactively action initiatives that need to be addressed. I can see the outcome and am able to move towards a solution with the focus on delivering results for all stakeholders.
Influencer. I clearly articulate expectations, capabilities, and action plans; actively listen with others’ frame of reference in mind; appropriately share information with team; favourably influencing people without direct authority. Setup customer scope meetings and help the client to understand their own requirements whilst ensuring the solution is packaged around our service offerings. Negotiate, price, term, T&C’s and escalations and KPA management.
