An early career very much focused on Manufacturing in the Hi Reliability Military and Communications Industries quickly developed into a broader role of Design activity, Project management and general Operations. This later developed into markets of medium to high volume Industrial and commercial products.
Broad Technical understanding has led me to Consult into Venture Capitalists for Due diligence activities in the roles of Technical Feasibility and the development of physical and organisational processes.
Working in S.E Asia for 7 Years in New Product Introduction and Manufacturing Management has provided insight into both the challenges and rewards that International partners can bring.
As a Freelance specialist in Product Realisation I work with both small and medium enterprises to provide the broad operational experience that helps them achieve the transition from concept product to full blown Production. With experience in creative Design For Manufacture, development of new Supply chains and ramping of production, I provide an overarching understanding, and the glue that holds together the overall solution.
