I grasp complex issues fast to devise practical solutions and make it happen through a hands on approach which clients appreciate. Have managed diverse projects from total company re-location to development of a semi-automated picking system. I love making things "work" where they were not, and finding elegant and effective solutions to both old and new problems and I am equally happy at strategic or detailed level. For fun I race a pre-war racing car.
