About Steve

Email Verified Email Verified

I am an experienced Production & Business Unit Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the mechanical & industrial engineering industry. Skilled in Engineering Management, Conflict Management, Project Construction Management, Process Engineering, Nuclear & Non-Nuclear Power Generation, Petro Oil & Gas, Coal-Fired Power Plants, Procurement, FMCG, and Engineering. Strong media and communication professional graduated from the South African Institute of Management. I enjoy working in a challenging yet stimulating environment and don’t see the glass as being half full or half empty, I see the glass being twice as big as it should be. I inspire my team and workforce by setting measurable goals, commend work well done, provide a sense of security, incentivise, give employees purpose, and to have an open-door policy. To achieve the maximum productivity of my staff, I create a culture of feedback and transparency, while maintaining an authentic disposition to gain trust. I get to get to know each individual by talking to them on the “shop floor” while on a walkthrough. Get the employees to believe in themselves, and encourage them to do what they believe they can’t do, and to take ownership of the product/process. My management brand is to provide an effective working environment, through continuous improvement, effective succession planning, high-quality Standards, monitoring the possibility of over/under utilisation of resources, strict compliance to Standard Operational Procedures (SOP) and, a safe working attitude. I have managed teams above 250 employees (including hired labour from many various cultures), managing five separate cost centres (Workshops / Factories) simultaneously. I am always willing to take on different roles as I am used to “wearing many hats”, and I am willing to work on a contract base should the need be. I am confident that my experience, Hands-on Management skills, Knowledge, and communication abilities make me a perfect candidate for the position that I apply for, and thus will add value to the organization.
