Introduction

Based on a large national and international network in the areas of operations and logistics, I will be able to liaise for and work in support of companies in the Integrated Air & Missile Defense domain. Furthermore, based on my extensive experience in the areas of evaluation, education, analysis and lessons learned, in combination with the flexibility to travel, I will besupport operational training for newcomers by sharing my overall knowledge in certifying operational units for NATO.
