My career spans over 28 years as quality manager characterized by a full range of operational and functional experiences during the conceptualization, implementation/transition of quality systems especially for aerospace, electronics, automotive and medical industries. Furthermore, I would like to mention that in each company I've had the opportunity to join very successful high-performance teams during the creation of quality culture through well-defined management systems and robust processes, skilled at establishing operational excellence standards and systems designed to eliminate repetitive errors, decrease variation and increase employee engagement to the company's objectives.
