About me

To whom it may concern,

I am a 37 year old male with over 17 years of experience in one of the fastest growing markets worldwide, i have had the privilege to experience on a first hand basis the rise of what has become a telecommunications giant in the world today. From humble beginnings to being the first network to offer prepaid in the SA market I have grown into the procurement professional i am today managing over R1 billion worth of transactions on a monthly basis, i feel my knowledge more recently working closely with MTN Dubai will be a advantage as i have first hand knowledge of the UAE market. I am a level headed individual who loves the challenge and considers managing people, negotiations and hard work and my strong qualities. I am a family man with 2 young sons, as well as passionate rugby enthusiast. I have been instrumental in implementing Oracle ERP projects namely E-sourcing, contract management, catalogue management, rever e-auction but to name a few. I have also been the super user on Oracle ERP for many years. The last year i have been heading up the Procurement and Commercial department of a Energy Company specializing in Solar and Energy Efficiency Solutions. I have been involved in the biggest Solar Car port PV project in SA.

I am currently completing my CIPS and i feel this will set me apart from the other candidates.

Thank You
