Financial Management Accounting Operations

Turned around a struggling business, initiating a new strategy that produced a significant profit and grew the business for over 20 years. Initially a wholesale manufacturer, the establishment of a factory open to the public, as well as the opening of retail stores, increased revenue from $1800 month to an average of $160,000 per month.

Forecasted budgets and trends; consistently facilitated quick financial adjustments that reduced potential cash flow issues. Advised management team on areas for immediate impact to a high cash flow business including adjustments in inventory, collections, and expenses.

Effectively negotiated lower rates with banks including consistent achievement of next day availability of funds. Thorough understanding of the business, credit lines, insurance, and taxes together with strong negotiating skills enabled consistent success in this arena.

Improved collections with department store clients through strong relationships, consistent monitoring, and watching trends. Strong relationships through regular on-site visits led to fewer “lost” invoices and facilitated faster payments. Saved thousands of dollars over time through effective analyses. For example, identified a competitive trend for a major account that significantly impacted their sales and saved the company $150,000.
