Cover Letter

My family and I have recently relocated back to Fort Myers from Wisconsin.

I am interested in obtaining an administrative or management position within a growing company.

I am a task driven person with a passion for sales, recruiting, managing, training, team-building and human resources. I feel that my integrity and work-ethic is above reproach. I am a planner and meticulous in my work. I have developed these skills over many years of working with some of the

best leaders and trainers in the business world. With over 15 years of professional training. building and sales experience, I am confident I have a lot to offer your company.

One of my most rewarding positions was being the lead administrator and school board president at Fort Myers Christian School. My experience allowed me to flourish in team-management, employee training, budgeting and

long-term goal planning. The school grew both in enrollment and financially under my direction. During the years I was in leadership we finished financially in the black for the first time in 10 years and saw revenues increase by 30%. My time at Fort Myers Christian School allowed me to cultivate my ability to lead, train and develop an outstanding team while continuing to serve them.

My wife, Christine has been a graphic designer for the past 20 years. She has worked with clients such as Major League Baseball, NASCAR, Cartoon Network, Kraft Foods, Johnsonville and Jostens Inc. to name a few. Christi is

currently the senior art director at Priority Marketing in Fort Myers. We have two children that keep us active with sports, school functions and outdoor activities.
