I am a U.S. citizen, residing permanently in Norway.

I have a great deal of relevant experience for this position, and very good demonstrated performance which I believe can be beneficial in a position with your company.I would particularly highlight my 10 years of experience and excellent results from United Parcel Service (UPS), as well as broad experience from the growing "home healthcare" industry in the USA, as Branch Logistics Supervisor for Apria Healthcare. I am equally comfortable in management positions and/or as part of a team.I am proactive, enjoy challenges and I am not afraid to pitch in and lend a hand wherever needed.

I am enclosing my CV in an English version. Please note that the English version of my CV contains considerably more detail than the summary version I have prepared for Norwegian applications.I hold a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Business and otherwise have a varied work background, with particular expertise in all aspects of logistics/transport, etc.

I hope that my qualifications are of interest.Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information or to schedule an interview. I can start work immediately.

Thank you in advance!
