In the past 25 years, I have worked in the Food and Agricultural industries in various positions ranging from production, market access and quality assurance, to third party auditing and scheme management.  I have worked for two large international CBs for 15 years – responsible for third party Food and Agricultural certification across the majority of the GFSI schemes as well as local schemes. A key part of the certification responsibility included scheme management, interaction with global partner offices, managing auditors, interaction with ABs and Scheme owners as well as maintaining the QMS for ISO17065 and ISO17021-1.  I believe my background in the food industry, auditing and certification gives me a good platform to support CBs, ABs and TOs and help with the continuous improvement of the FSSC 22000 Scheme.
