Planning for next strategic role

I am currently working with a small UK based International logistics company where I am currently reengineering the operations of the company, by fully computerising the business, with a distinct focus on Java technology (although VB6 also used). Improving both turnover and profitability are key drivers, as well as providing a launchpad to penetrating new markets. I have also designed a complementary marketing strategy.
From Jan/Feb the strategic development and implementation of this project will be complete, and while I can stay on to deal with future development and maintenance, I would rather find new strategic projects where I can use all of my skills.
I expect to be qualified as a SCEA in Java 2 by the end of Jan. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1991 (with Price Waterhouse, London)and as a Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing in 1995. I am a graduate of economics. Hence I am able to design solutions to business issues with a clear technical, financial and marketing focus.
If anyone is looking for a Java Architect or Project Manager to start early next year, I would be interested in talking to see if my skills match your requirements.
I see my key skills (in addition to those noted above) as:-
1. Ability to sell projects at director level, while being able to work with the most junior staff.
2. Ability to understand how computers and Java technology can lead the profitable growth of a business.
I am willing to work almost anywhere in the world on a contract basis, and am happy to give blood in return for adequate remuneration.
I may not be the most experienced pure Java architect, but my rounded business, issue identifying and resolving, experience enables me to improve a business's bottom line.
Please let me know if you require any further information.

Why am I so drawn to cherry pie? I can't seem to stop. Save me tiny ad!
