CV of George Oberle

I was educated to university entrance level, and then undertook a course of electro techniques at the university in Stuttgart, faculty of electrical and optical communication techniques (INT), which I didn't complete. I have been since working with foreign firms and international organizations and have developed during this period a broad base of working experience in the fields of camp and workshop management, supply, logistics, procurement and general administration, and I became a effective employee in leading functions with the ability to perform in multi-national teams and able to work to tight deadlines in demanding environments. More than 22 years experiences in leading positions of international projects in remote areas with up to 199 co-workers makes self-motivation with great sense of responsibility and discipline to an essential part of my character.
