To enhance and explore new and exciting job opportunities. I have a proven track record


devising/executing strategies that build sales, lower expenses, reduce shrink and increase

earnings in fast-paced, B2C service environments. Overseeing day-to-day operations,

budgets and strategic plan development, I met, and often exceeded, corporate expectations.

I have an extensive background in team building, problem solving, and process/performance

improvement. Skilled in training/development, I built management teams and staffs, driving

unprecedented growth.

My other key strengths include:

• Developing and implementing policies and procedures to increase revenues and market share.

• Managing inventory to improve in-stock numbers and reduce shrinkage.

• Facilitating training and integration of management teams following acquisitions.

• Increasing store brand penetration and improving merchandising to increase margins.
