Summary
I am a self-starting, motivated IT consultant with over twenty years experience in the computer Industry. I am a certified SAP Materials Management Consultant, I have extensive experience using Plant Maintenance and I am also an experienced ABAP developer.
I have lived in Singapore for the past nine years and recently worked for Abeam Consulting Pte Ltd on an implementation project, version ECC 6.0, to roll out the APAC template to the Australia subsidiary of the NEC Electronics Corporation.

Prior to relocating, I had been responsible for the development and maintenance of the MM/ WM process, of a full SAP solution implementation. This has required in-depth knowledge of the client’s business process and the SAP MM/WM and PM functional capability to deliver quality enhancements.
