Summary

I am a well presented and pro-active project manager and product innovator who has a relentless drive to have a broad impact rather than just deliver results. I possess experience in industries from consumer packaged goods to multi-platform advertising.  I excel at  leveraging this industry knowledge to manage diverse projects and product activity. I am known for providing clear guidance to leadership and cross departmental teams ensuring that all logistical and KPI requirements are fully met. I pride myself on being a confident communicator with strong interpersonal and analytical skills, who thrives on social interaction and customer satisfaction. I am presently looking to join a company where collaboration is valued, success is rewarded and internal succession is always given priority.
