Summary

Having over 25 years of experience achieving outstanding results in all aspects of Business Management, my unique advantage is my wide range of experience, from Corporate Sales to Hospitality, along with my ability to effectively recruit, retain and manage all levels of talent from entry level positions to top executives. I successfully apply process-oriented approaches to maintain strong business relationships with customers, vendors, and senior leadership.

Possessing a constant goal focus, I execute all roles and responsibilities with the end result in mind. As a successful business owner, I understand the pressures of the different roles of ownership and Executive Leadership. But my intense focus on the client’s experience has been the cornerstone of my Leadership strategy and the key to my success.

I am happy to recommend Eileen for  a position with any company.  I have known her for 23 years and have seen tremendous growth in her skills and abilities in working with all types of people through her volunteer work.  She is a well rounded and this has suited her in being a great mentor to many who have met her and worked with her.  She has an intense sense of commitment and is excellent at problem solving in real life situations.  I feel that Eileen would be a good fit with just about any company given her compassion and her natural leadership abilities.

I would enthusiastically recommend her for any managerial position.
