Erwin V.

 Waasmunster | Belgium


With 25 years of hands-on experience successfully devising and implementing insightful regional and global business strategies and turning around poorly performing divisions within the manufacturing industry, I believe I possess the Senior General Management qualities that can help to elevate your company to the next level.

Possessing seasoned interpersonal and communication skills, I am able to provide clear direction across all internal and external operational levels. And, as a leader, my style is one of inclusion and consultation based on finely tuned insights into the personalities of individual team members. Additionally, I take great pride in the fact that I posses the demonstrated ability to proactively identify potential operational and market-related issues and provide rapid and effective solutions.

With a strong track record of consistent career successes, I am now seeking the opportunity to join a team in a CEO, Managing Director, General Manager or COO position (interim). My roles in the past have ranged from President/Chairman and Managing Director to Business Unit Manager and Operations Director. A sample of my extensive contributions includes:

       Delivering additional sales of $1.5M by negotiating favourable deals with sub-contractors in Central and Eastern Europe allowing the company to compete with local competitors in Latin- America.

       Reducing waste level from 14% to 10%.

       Boosting man hour output by 25% in the extrusion division.

       Delivering 56% sales growth from 2003-2008.

       Initiating significant operational savings by transferring production in the Netherlands and Germany to the company’s production facility in Poland.

       Orchestrating necessary reduction of global entities within the group from 23 to 6.

       Identifying acquisition opportunities and orchestrating successful integration of acquisitions in Europe and the USA.

       Avoiding high import taxes by utilising Ukraine plant as a subcontractor to the Polish plant. 

For a more detailed presentation of my skills and background, please review the enclosed CV and feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you in advance for your consideration and I look forward to your call.
