General Manager , Coffee Procuring and Processing Company

The combination of two Master Degrees (International Management & Business, Language and Culture) and extensive experience managing and growing an East African company in a very remote area has given me the chance to develop professionally on many different levels. My key skill is my ability to manage intercultural teams with focus on efficiency, yet also on individual empowerment and growth.
