The experienced SCM Process Management Web Applications Entrepreneurship SAP Ariba


Senior purchasing and supplier development engineer with background in both electrical and computer science

I have worked as electrical maintenance engineer for about a year then started supply chain experience as purchasing and supplier development engineer at alfanar transformer factory for about 4 years. Now, I am handling procurement activities at alfanar Circuit breaker factory as procurement team leader and handling also some supplier development tasks with development team leader beside my special duties at Ariba implementation project at alfanar . My best advantage is my experience on web application development, which give great knowledge to improve business process in supply chain by automating it or implement high rated web application – cloud systems in coordinate with organization ERP system experts. I have got a CS50 certificate from Harvardx University and a BA at electrical power engineering from Damascus University and preparing to get master degree in supply chain management from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I’m truly passionate about my work and always eager to have latest success technique. While I enjoy all aspects of my job, I think my favorite stage of a project is working with my team or business unit leader to understand his or her business objectives. As we go through that collaborative process, the ideas start to generate and flow and that’s always the passion part. I’m always interested in hearing from former colleagues, managers, or just interesting creative folk, so feel free to contact me if you’d like to connect.
