2. Regional field experience in:
a. Middle East. This is mainly Libya, Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon.

5. Swiss army-knife style corporate operations solutions. I have constructed IT setups for a variety of SME groups over the years. Currently I am working to implement a SalesForce based solution for a rapidly growing Trade Finance Fund.

6. An anytime, anyplace person. I will work in deserts, jungles, cities. Give me a time, a place, a ticket and I will be there. Whether you are a Chinese state-owned agri-trader looking to break into Africa or a Cayman-domiciled fund and need someone in your Geneva (or Tokyo) office, I’m more than happy to oblige. In short, have gun and will travel.

7. A quirky sense of humour that can provide an amenable working relationship.

If you have a position involving any of the following:
1. Shareholder Activism
2. Non-performing loans/corporate restructurings
3. Physical Commodity Trading (fuels, grains, fertilisers in particular)
