Vice President Consumer Testing Services, EAME
“I am currently working for the Consumer Testing Services business for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and my main task is to ensure our growth and excellence in these regions. My work involves frequent travel to various countries and meetings with staff and clients, to identify opportunities, define strategies for organic growth and acquisitions or to review operational excellence. Before I joined, I hadn’t grasped quite how interesting it would be to work for SGS. We’re working in so many different industries and our entrepreneurial spirit makes us a pioneer and a market leader in our field. I thrive on the fact that whenever good business ideas are brought up, they are considered seriously. And living the SGS Code of Integrity is for me one of our most important assets, besides the team supporting each other to achieve our targets.”

“I joined SGS in Kenya 35 years ago as a junior employee and I have risen to the position of Middle East Finance Director. This really goes to show that if you work hard with sincerity, transparency and honesty, the sky truly is the limit to your career growth and development at SGS. I feel that I have grown not only career-wise but also as a person and I truly believe that it is thanks to SGS, and the opportunities that I’ve had through my work, that I am who I am today.”
Life Science Services, Head of Global Business Development
New York, USA
“SGS offers direct exposure to global business through its diverse and rewarding multicultural dealings, as well as many opportunities for social interaction. A typical day is spent either telecommunicating with or visiting my colleagues and customers from around the globe. I am based in the suburbs of New York City, so my morning contacts are mainly with Europe, followed by the Americas in the middle of the day and ending with the Asia in the evenings.”
Global Liquefied Natural Gas Manager
“After 9 years in the Merchant Navy, I joined SGS in 2004. I wanted to work for a growing company that could match my ambition, and there were several things that attracted me to SGS. The main selling point was definitely the opportunity to work for a company that was large enough to compete for world-class projects, yet agile enough to allow individuals to provide strategic input. With SGS being a global company, I got the opportunity to develop a growing business on a global scale. The greatest thing about my job is that I can fall back on the technical knowledge and experience that I developed over my years at sea, while at the same time developing my managerial skills.”
