CAREER SUMMARY

In automotive sales, I moved quickly into management, then moved back into sales finding at the time I preferred better control of my time and the increased income. Having been a Finance, Used car, New car, and a General manager, has given me a broad spectrum of experience. I have also been an independent insurance agent and run a Janitorial company both as a General Manager and an owner prior to my career in the automotive industry. My experience, accountability, integrity, work ethic, and loyalty will make me an asset in the next chapter of my career.
