I am President of the Americas for WABCO. I report to Jacques Esculier, CEO, and am part of the Executive Leadership Team. I am accountable for the overall P&L of the Americas Region which comprises all WABCO business activity in North and South America.
I would describe my leadership style as “firm but fair.” I really enjoy challenging myself and everyone on the team to accomplish more than we expect. I do expect a lot out of my team but not more than I expect from myself. I also always try to create an environment of transparency and open exchange supported by decisiveness and action.
We’re challenging ourselves to develop our team and further grow our region through our “Partners in Uptime” vision. This is a very ambitious vision to engage our entire company to be devoted to and focused on ensuring fully satisfied customers.
