Fred started his career as an Electronics Engineer in Holland, where he was born. He handled service and installation projects in Austria, Germany, Russia and South Africa for Measurex Corporation (merged with Honeywell Inc. in 1997).
In 1978, he was responsible for initial start-up operations of Measurex in Brazil, where he expanded operations into Chile, Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela and Colombia. Fred then moved to Miami, as Service Operations Manager for Central and South America, including Mexico, achieving an outstanding financial, on-time and results track record.
He ended his career with Measurex Corporation, as Senior Operations Manager in Latin America, with over 25 years experience in multi-industry manufacturing environments. He has been operating his own consulting company for the last few years, working for companies with operations throughout Latin America, USA and Europe. Fred is perhaps best recognized for his ability to form multi-cultural service teams and increase of operation margins against some incredible odds.
