Current Title & Company: Project Execution General Manager, STC
If I had to summarize my career in a few short words, it would have to be: improving top-line growth and fixing bottom-line issues.
These were benefits I delivered even while serving in engineering-focused project leadership roles, because I strive to assess and solve issues that are blocking or limiting revenue and profits.
As a strategic leader who has been fortunate to grow as a professional within STC, I have a record of leading successful execution of strategic initiatives spanning many challenges: complex infrastructure, technology deployment, customer experience, solutions delivery, and operation excellence.
To achieve results in all of these areas, an important factor has been a unique approach I developed that speeds up decisions, resulting in faster value creation and realization.
Of course, my team members are instrumental in every success, and I am extremely proud of the high-performing departments I lead. Within these teams, about two-thirds of our project managers are certified through the Project Management Institute, demonstrating a commitment to excellence.
I focus on volunteering within my organization in order to set the right foundation for the STC project management community in terms of project management elevation and maturity.
