Dear Sir or Madam,

I am currently working as an Operations Manager at the Kartal Distribution since 2010 and have previously worked as the warehouse and production manager in my time there. About 3 years ago, we started on a journey of practising Lean and have been implementing the various principles of Lean daily. I have also previously gained experience working for the Dynamic Distribution as a warehouse manager. Last year, I have just graduated with a diploma in Advanced Business Project Management course through the University of Cape Town. After I matriculated from Bergvliet High School, I have lived and worked in London for at least two years.

As you read through my resume, I am a people’s person and that I understand the need to deliver value to the customer while overseeing the many types of systems. I am looking to broaden my understanding through more work experience and expand my horizons. If I am invited for an interview, I will be in Doha at the start of September 2019 and I would be very happy to discuss my experiences in more detail.
