In my current and previous roles, I have established a successful track record structuring and implementing projects that yield measurable results, including cost reductions gained from improved operational / process performance; along with productivity gains through multiple change and improvement initiatives. I have had great success on a myriad of projects through successful collaborations, sound strategic planning, effective team management and my ingrained ability to allocate the resources at my disposal in a prudent and efficient manner.
