Frank P.


I am at my best in an international, fast paced and ever changing environment. I combine solid accounting, financial and controlling knowledge with strong interpersonal and problem solving skills.
I love working together with people from different backgrounds and cultures, my good sense of humour helps overcoming any cultural difference. I prefer working in a company with an open culture with focus on working together and sharing knowledge.

I would love to continue my career in Africa to combine my passion for travelling and experience other cultures with sharing my knowledge in a new and probably challenging environment.
