John's bio

Originating from the UK, I have lived in The Netherlands for the past 14 years and am married with two children. During this time I’ve worked for a global company reporting to senior management within a multicultural environment, working on assignments in various European countries.

Through my roles both in the UK and in The Netherlands, I have gained extensive international knowledge and experience in Manufacturing, Production Engineering, Project Management, Marketing, Channel Management, Business Intelligence and Logistics. I am also a certified PRINCE2 Project Manager.

My strengths are my high personal standards and my natural intuition for problem solving, which help me achieve my targets of continuous quality improvement and ensure my solutions meet all stakeholder requirements. I’m highly analytical and solutions focused in delivering complex projects across diverse functional departments.

I have successfully completed projects in Logistics, Product Management and Sales Marketing providing me with a wide ranging, cross functional Project Management experience. I specialise in driving business development using high quality data to make informed, fact-based business decisions.

Recently I’ve concentrated on Cost of Sales projects and managed the integration of key partner ‘Point of Sales’ data into our business intelligence system to target investments for maximum returns, to provide effective sales coverage and align customers to company initiatives. I engaged senior management and IT within our largest customers to sell a process based on trust, utilising their most sensitive data for mutual benefit. I'm a strong believer in the importance of maintaining high ethical standards in the workplace. My core values include: being open and honest, delivering on commitments and supporting colleagues to achieve their business and personal goals.
