Experienced Project Manager

I am a project manager with  more than 22 years cumulative work experience, and have a successful track record of project problem-solving, communication and decision-making skills.

I have a BTech: Mechanical Engineering Degree from CPUT (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Cape Town Campus).

I have experience in product design, tooling, injection moulding, blow moulding and vacuum forming for the plastics industry. I managed a drawing office, demonstrating my keen eye for detail. Over the last 11 years I have proven to be a competent project manager with a demonstrated history of completing projects and exceeding customer expectations in the construction industry.

My experience with Steel structures, Cladding, Corporate Signage (on a national level, for rollouts including Total TAIR, Caltex (Chevron), Engen, Capitec), Plastics, Wood, Steel and ACM amongst others, places me in a great position to manage a diverse range of aspects for any project.

I have been involved with Industrial freezers, cold rooms, CA stores, Ripening Rooms, classrooms and temporary housing. I designed and managed the manufacturing and installation of all the required materials for these projects using AutoCAD, Cimatron and SolidWorks.

I worked alongside various service teams, amongst others:  HVAC, Roofing and Fire and Protection Services, and managed many successful installations throughout South Africa and the rest of the continent.

My experience as a project manager has enabled me to efficiently manage projects from inception to conclusion. My knowledge and experience has more than adequately prepared me for all aspects of a project, from financial, to design, to manufacturing/ production, and installations.

I have experience managing teams extensively in Southern Africa, Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Kenya.

A typical day for me includes: developing project scope and schedules, creating & distributing training/installation manuals, on-site problem solving,  coordinating effective communication, negotiating contracts with suppliers , generating and updating of reporting systems, project scheduling and costing, compiling budget reports, estimating and quoting, site supervision, occupational health and safety (OH&S), team management, financial reporting, and travelling.

I have interests in photography, reading auto-biographies and enjoy using my free time to participate in Scouting with my kids.

I am very flexible regarding the location.
