“I have strong work ethic and am known for consistent execution of strategic plans. When the Canadian ‘cleantech’ company Blutip Power Technologies approached me to spearhead their efforts in the Australian market, launching their new platform SmartRFuel to reduce fuel consumption; I quickly decided to take on this opportunity to make a significant and meaningful contribution to the industry.”
