Personally, I consider myself to be a well-disciplined, industrious individual with a pleasant personality. I have always performed well beyond my job requirements as evident by the quantity and quality of each project I've led. I’ve been known to, on many occasions, invest extra research and personal time ensuring target deadlines meet schedule requirements. I am always interested in, and motivated to learn new material. I also put great effort into assimilating my own experiences and developing my own ideas about each project I work on. Professionally, I am a highly experienced Sales and Operations Executive who has demonstrated the ability to lead diverse teams of sales professionals to new levels of success in a variety of highly competitive industries, cutting-edge markets, and fast-paced environments. Strong entrepreneurial, technical, sales, and business qualifications with an impressive track record of more than 15 years of hands-on experience in strategic planning, business unit development, project and product management, and system engineering strategies. Proven ability to successfully analyze an organization's critical business requirements, identify deficiencies and potential opportunities, and develop innovative and cost-effective solutions for enhancing competitiveness, increasing revenues, and improving customer service offerings.
