**** ************ ** * Raleigh, NC 27616 * (904) ***-****/(919) ***-**** *

I have more than 10 years of combined project management experience as a Program and Project Manager at the local and regional levels in various capacities in the federal, private, and public sectors. The advertised job description duties and responsibilities are routine for a seasoned PM and based on this I am competent and comfortable that I can meet and/or exceed the expectations for the position. My attached abbreviated resume validates previous project manager experience; please click on the LinkedIn link above to view the expanded version.

I have managed full circle and concurrently a myriad of projects varying in size, scope, and cost from inception to completion that included budget projections/management and capturing metric data for process improvement. I have managed hard and soft projects_ infrastructure projects: switch upgrades, power upgrades, new and retrofit school networks, start-up cellular networks, synchronous optical networks, facility upgrades, network equipment building, and data center migration; curriculum development and various types of training. Duties and responsibilities of these past positions included developing, tracking, and reporting of all project plans and schedules as well as technical installation, operation, and maintenance training management.

I know how to coordinate, track the project via EVM, share, and report every task in every phase of projects start to finish. As local and Regional Project Manager I have worked with internal and external stakeholders at all levels, matrixed or non-matrixed from the smallest team and smallest customer through SVP. I’ve developed project plans with thousands of tasks over multiple concurrent regional projects. By incorporating the right tools, developing and evolving strategy maps, and project plans I can ensure that a foundation is successfully planned to execute task orders of the SOW within scope, quality criteria, acceptable timelines, and budget limits of the business case and/or contract.

As a certified Project Manager, I know project management in accordance with the Project Management Institute standards. I’ve also served as the transportation corps in fleet operations, convoy operations, and movement control operations; understand the supply chain management process needed to sustain any operation and material management. I hold a master’s degree in Computer Resources and Information Management and certification as a certified computer engineer and technician, so I am proficient with Microsoft Office Suite as well as MS Project and Visio. I am accustomed to being the Single Point of Contact so I can set the project controls that allow me to accept full responsibility and accountability ensuring the success of the project

I also bring to the position the value-added skills of administrative, operations, supply chain, vendor/contractor, communications systems, IT, Information, telecommunications, and customer relationship/experience management. I am a very people/customer oriented person who continuously strives for process improvements through in progress reviews, monitoring and evaluation, after action reporting, and lessons learned reviews; understand the value of communication and coordination to get things done; and I know how to increase productivity by stimulating stakeholder motivation that fosters teamwork and elevates effectiveness to efficiency.

With me you will gain a team member with unparalleled work ethics and integrity that are beyond reproach. I am a Team Player regardless of the position held; I lead and follow by example. Give me the OAARS_ Opportunity, Authority, Accountability, Resources, and Support and I will meet and/or exceed the business case or mission requirements.

I look forward to hearing from you to arrange for an in-person or video interview to discuss mutual concerns; I can be reached with the contact information in the letterhead.
