Axel B.

Summary

I have been working in the Building Services sector as Project, Site, Maintenance Manager and MEP Consultant. I have more than 17 years of experience in these sectors. For the last 11 years I have worked in West Africa, more so in Nigeria.

Because of my Project Management experience, I have amassed vast experience in planning and budgeting of operational projects.

I have worked in various companies such as ETCO, VACC, Keysode and WAV (West African Ventures). During my period with these companies I always archived maximum success.
In addition to my above experience I have also done fabrication, tooling, 3D design, ERP implementation,
My administrative skills are of very high standard. With my additional computer programming education I am very good in programming VBA for MS Office applications. This allows me to automate administrative tasks.
