I was awarded an MBE (most distinguished member of the British Empire) for Services to British Exports in South and Central America. Extensive experience in the global sales, export and civil engineering sectors. Since 1981 I've worked in the export business, more specifically, in the exportation of steel bridge fabrications within Central & South America, the Caribbean and Portuguese Africa. In 2004, I founded 3S Structural Steel Solutions LLC, which specialises in turnkey, design build contracts for transportation improvement projects in Central & Latin America as well as the Caribbean. I am keenly involved in two non-profit foundations; Explora Panama and Chain of Hope.
