Carl Liverfors

M.Sc. Mechanical engineering

20 years of experience in Quality, Manufacturing, Project Managment and Engineering. Since I with curiousity entered the field of Quality in 2009, I am everyday more and more passionate about leadership in Quality and what it can bring to an organisation.

I have exceptional knowledge of Global Quality and Continuous Improvement processes, mainly in Supplier Quality Management in Vestas and Bombardier. I come with extensive experience from the automotive, rail and wind industry and have the proven ability to successfully adapt and implement my knowledge in various industries.

As a person, I am a trustworthy, systematic and goal-oriented entrepreneur with a holistic view and great sense of driving change management. Trust and responsibility are fundamental in building teams, that will take on new challenges and step out of their comfort zone. My values are based on trust, collaboration, clarity and curiosity.

As a leader, I have built strong teams, implemented tools, set strategies, standardised processes and outsourced big projects and production processes. With excellent leadership and training skills, I have brought many low performing suppliers back on track.
