Chief Executive Officer
At Xaar we develop world-leading piezoelectric drop-on-demand inkjet technologies.
My passion is helping individuals, teams and organizations realize their potential. I love Peter Drucker's quote "Culture eats strategy for breakfast", and what gets me most energized is helping organizations get their culture right. To do this a company needs four things: the right kind of leadership, the right talent (who possess the right skills for where you are and where you need to go, and who are engaged and committed), the right processes / infrastructure, and the right mindset. The mindset in an organization is a huge untapped potential. Everyone knows it is critical but most struggle with figuring out how to influence it. That's where I can help. I have deep experience optimizing Human Capital in SME, Fortune 500 corporations, start-ups, distressed and high growth environments. I'm a strategic, entrepreneurial hands on leader with 20 years of global expertise in Executive & C-Level Coaching, Talent Management and Organizational Transformation.
