He is known for quality delivery against set goals and considers the journey towards those goals as important too. That is what develops people and creates winning teams, ultimately delivering breakthrough performances.

He integrated lessons learned from preceding years where he has led and contributed to large oil and gas projects in Brazil, Norway, Scotland, England and the Netherlands.
