I am looking for opportunities to deploy my experience, strengths and abilities to new fields. My key objective is to bring the assignments I am given a business success. This is what I find most rewarding at the end of the day. It is also the source of pride and high motivation for me and my team.

I am responsible for the content, design and the timely delivery of all product releases of OPM. Furthermore I am responsible for the integration of this software with other major IBM products such as DB2 server, InfoSphere Warehouse or WebSphere Application Server.
