Consultant Roads and Traffic - Certified Road Safety Auditor
The skills and experience in safety improvement of road infrastructure I have been able to gain will contribute to the reduction of human suffering caused by road accidents.
I cherish working with people of all kinds of cultural backgrounds and I do not backdown for operating under difficult circumstances, neither in urban zones of major world cities nor in remote rural areas.
To operate as a road safety consultant in emerging economies is my heartfelt desire. Traffic safety conditions are currently poor in many regions of the world and accidents are increasing in numbers and severity. In the course of years I have been successful in building an impressive track record of achievements on projects in emerging countries and elsewhere (Africa, Middle East and Eastern Europe in particular).
It is not only the execution of successful projects, but also sharing of professional experiences with younger generations from emerging economies that will help to create a sustainable improvement of safety for all road users, including the vulnerable ones.
The know-how that I have gained through working in various regions, under different circumstances with diverse cultures and people enriches the way I am able to provide my services to clients worldwide. I worked in North, East and West Africa, Middle East, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe, besides of the Netherlands, my basis. All-in-all my overseas professional experience spans 12 years plus over a 40 years period and I have been to more than 20 countries.
