Objective

To obtain an Operations Management position within a progressive environment that promotes growth and development while demanding continuous improvement. I seek to find a rewarding position in operations that will test and strengthen my skill set in various capacities across diverse venues. 

Overview

My name is Cameron Brady and I write this with the intention of presenting my qualifications for a position that will expand my expertise in facility and event operations management.

My diverse experience managing event operations, inventories and facilities for some of the largest sporting events in the world will enable me to be successful in any communication intensive position.

Although currently diversifying my skill-set as a 3PL Traffic Specialist for Logikor Group, I was most recently the Operations Manager for Great White North Dragon Boat, where I managed and oversaw all local and international events, as well as managed warehouse operations. As Venue Logistics Manager for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games, I oversaw all logistics operations for multiple venues within the Games footprint. During the preliminary planning phases leading up to the Games, I worked very closely with multiple functional areas, contractors and facilities owners. I was responsible for ensuring that the agendas, schedules and interests of each were aligned in an integrated venue timeline. My expertise in effectively managing complex event operation life-cycles has contributed to my success as an event operations professional in various capacities
