I boast of a successful career in providing leadership, direction and management guidance in both private and public sectors and not for profit enterprises. My skills set include decisiveness, adaptability and good communication. These are buttressed by sound risk mitigation, knowledge of economic drivers in developing and developed country markets, substantial research and analysis of international trade access systems and flows on various products, and a wide network of contacts. I am confident of achieving maximum impact in the shortest time given this knowledge. I have a solid grasp of financial analytical tools and financing options, organizations, donor financiers and areas of operation.

As an expert in value addition processes, I possess knowledge of organizational systems, processes and how to optimize and drive revenue and business growth.

Through the application of global monitoring and evaluation techniques, I have a record of consistent attainment of objectives and ensuring a lasting impact. My intimate knowledge both private and public sector practices and exposure to developing economies gives me the resilience needed to tackle new challenges and approach decisions from a broader perspective.
