Despite his broad educational background and analytical skills gained in investment management and private equity, colleagues see his main strengths in charismatic leadership and inspirational team management where he has the ability to federate and motivate people from diverse backgrounds and socio-economic levels around common objectives.
As a versatile generalist who has a good understanding of all of the aspects of the complex social system that is a company with several hundred staff, he has added significantly to his experience of management in challenging environments over the last couple of years. The bank he currently manages focuses on servicing MSMEs thereby improving access to finance in Liberia. Africa is his favoured continent.
He believes that working hard and focusing on results come all the way easier in an environment of trust and in a positive and energising atmosphere where people (including himself :-) ) love to come to work.
The ability to identify and focus on priorities, common sense, capacity to ask questions, listen, understand and learn quickly, good knowledge of IT, administration with its many pitfalls, organisation, diplomacy despite determination to drive things forward are also part of his skill set. Colleagues and partners also appreciate his resilience to stress and negotiation skills where he works consistently to achieve win-win situations.
Good and open communication is the foundation of efficient team work and organisational resilience. Problems should be seen as opportunities to grow and strengths used to build upon and inspire.
Oliver generally invests significant amounts of his time to build and enhance management capacity in the organisation. It takes a strong team to achieve great results.
Please don't hesitate to contact Oliver. He is always happy to meet new people, provide information or exchange.
