									International Water Management Consultant
Advanced - Engineering / Master of Science

NW6 4QH London
United Kingdom

Dear all,

I am a French engineer, working internationally in the sector of water and environmental public services

My multidisciplinary studies in International Agro-Development, completed by two Masters of Science
in Water Management and Geospatial Analysis, enable me to integrate a variety of complementary
notions (technical, economic, social) in the projects employing me.

Trilingual (French, English, Spanish), and with 7 years of professional experience in many countries
and for various stakeholders of the water and public services sectors, I am interested in projects
management, advice and expertise, research and training missions, anywhere in the world.

Feel free to contact me if my profile can serve your projects!

Thank you, best wishes,

Régis Garandeau.
