“As Business Director for the Raychem line of Tyco Electronics products, and later as VP of Sales and Marketing, our management team relied heavily on Analucia's supply chain management acumen and professional relationships with key suppliers. Analucia was particularly adroit in helping our division navigate and minimize the impact of the dramatic raw material cost increases we experienced in the 2005-2007 period. This allowed us to remain competitive suppliers to our commercial and military customers and moderate the impact on our profitability. On a personal note, Analucia has charming disposition but get's tough when the situation calls for it. No Bias, No Bull! I highly recommend Analucia for any future Purchasing/Supply Chain Manager positions she might be considered for.” April 30, 2009
