HR Manager,

I believe change brings opportunity. As an operations leader, I am known for driving change and increasing quality and efficiency through intentional design. I work tirelessly to coach and mentor my staff to ensure each team member meets his/her potential and builds bottom-line value for the organization.

I am a proven performer with broad expertise in product management, production management, procurement, sales and marketing in the construction, oil and gas, military and defense, fluid power, power generation, marine, aerospace, energy and renewable energy, combustion, nuclear, medical, machine building, automotive and electronics markets. My history includes:

200% increase in production throughput, processing high-quality products across 7 markets.

25% reduction in lead times, identifying waste through value stream mapping.

20% rise in EBITDA, developing competitive pricing structure for top accounts.

With a full understanding of all aspects of the business, I am ready for a new challenge wherein I can add value across different disciplines with a hands-on leadership style. As such, I am confidently exploring operations management positions and would welcome the opportunity for a personal interview. Thank you.

Sincerely,
