Summary

The common thread of 20 years' experience working in various industries is that I am passionate about working with others to solve difficult problems. Whether working in engineering to expand our technological horizon, in diplomacy and program management to addresses poverty in developing countries, or in green construction to mitigate climate change, I am driven to solve challenges through teamwork. Unique qualifications: -- Succeeding in international environments (lived & worked on 5 continents, diverse teams help keep an open mind!) -- Managing implementation in complex situations (scarce information, remote locations) -- Speaking languages (English, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese) -- Knowledge of various industries, private & public (high-tech, construction, economic growth, diplomacy, government) Key Skills: -- Working together with a common vision on challenging projects -- Finishing work on time -- Planning and managing complex work and guiding staff -- Managing resources, milestones, and timelines to meet objectives -- Analyzing information for useful patterns (qualitative and quantitative) Specialties: -- Portfolio management, planning, international cooperation -- Leading teams and managing through ambiguity -- Anticipating problems and resolving them -- Collaboratively generating ideas on how to do things better (systems, process, designs)
