General Manager with a proven track record, here and overseas, seeks a challenging senior operations or general management  role within a medium-sized offset printing company – preferably in Sydney or Brisbane.

Skills encompass managing the day-to-day running of all aspects of the business including, administration, operations, production and sales admin with some involvement in financial management. Accustomed to coordinating resources effectively, able to analyze, plan, and implement a large number of projects and functions effectively – while at the same time providing a strategic overview.

Over 30 years local and international experience in commercial printing, he is comfortable with managing demanding deadlines, complex multiple production environments and diverse technologies.

His expertise includes: good commercial acumen, strong key client management, well-founded people management skills, plus extensive purchasing and procurement knowledge.

Described by clients as "Mister Fix-it", with a hands-on, firm-but-fair management style, he has managed such difficult events as plant closures (including redundancies), relocation of equipment and key staff – and all without loss of respect and with seamless effect.

Experience covers the full suite of print production processes, having managed several printing businesses in Australia and the UK (in one case with several 100 staff and with sales offices in Europe, Ireland and the USA).

This gentleman would be a valuable asset to any printing business, particularly one seeking to "manage change" or seeking to re-engineer itself for greater profitability.
