Manager Cost Control & Air Port Ops.

Vessel Operations


A flexible mind-set driven by a focus on business requirements, gives the ability to keep a structured overview and balanced sense for the right details. Through relevant experience from previous employments, I have acquired an overview on business understanding as well as strong competences within data analysis. As a highly self-driven performer, I excel in stakeholder and change management, and relying on my good communication skills, I can effortlessly secure buy-in from stakeholders and drive change in an open and upright manner. I like to alternate between performing independently and being the team player/Leader contributing proactively to team objectives.
