**** * ***** ** *******, MI **915



I am looking for a career that calls for an efficient, and aggressive manager or supervisor with several years of experience in management of every level. I have brought an aggressive, efficient, team-building style of leadership to every organization of which I have been a member. I have mentored, counseled, coached and trained subordinates; made an everlasting impression on every subordinate that has worked for me; I have trained, supervised, and evaluated hundreds of new workers both in and out of the classroom and shop environments and passed on knowledge that they can take with them to their careers; saved the organization millions of dollars in unnecessary overhead and wasteful costs, and finally I am now ready for my next challenge whatever that may be.
