"Home is a place where when you have to go there, they have to take you in"
- Robert Frost
What I love most about my job is leading people and inspiring confidence in their abilities. I'm committed to excellence and I'm passionate about quality service. Throughout my career, I have managed Distribution ($36 million), Manufacturing ($140 million), Health Insurance ($1.3 billion), and Financial Services ($25 million) businesses. These assignments required development and implementation of business strategies leading to turnarounds at four companies, and record growth in sales and profitability at three companies while managing cultural change and upgrading personnel.
I'm confident, committed, and have a relentless work ethic. Additionally, I have a very optimistic and forward looking view in my professional and personal lives. I'm especially exceptional in strategic thinking, meeting performance goals and short and long term planning. When I set my mind to something I effectively organize, assemble and arrange resources to meet those goals. In my career, I have successfully restructured three companies leading to record growth and profitability, and refinanced one company through Brazilian Export Financing arrangements resulting in 70% lower borrowing costs.
Developing strategic solutions to problems comes naturally to me. In my career, I have demonstrated consistently distinguished performances in leading
turnaround situations at four companies that required terminating incompetent management while investing in new facilities and upgrading personnel. Sales and profitability grew to record levels at three of these businesses through new product introductions, strategic market expansion, global sourcing, and export financing arrangements.
