Highlights in Lighting/GLG

LED Lighting available to corporations, schools, cities, state agencies. Complete energy conservation studies to reduce the energy utilized in lighting. Met the state officials with the Dept. of Fresh Water Game Commission and submitted an Amber LED Light for Sea Turtle approval. Two lights have been approved and a third, a cobra head street light has been submitted for approval. Currently city and state ordinances do not allow white light for 8 months out of the year, sea turtle season. Most cities and business’s along the coast of Florida turn the lights off allowing the criminal element to come out. With these approvals, the cities and companies along the coast can bring back safety and security to the community.

Summary

As a self starter with an upbeat positive attitude, I recognize the best traits of the people I work with. I have used my leadership skills to complete the tasks that have been handed to me by CEO’s and city leaders. With a proven track record of over 20 years, I have a reputation as both a business builder and always taking an active role in the community. My background includes running multiple businesses in the areas of sales, business development, management, real estate appraisal, human resources, training, recruiting, construction foreman, designing blueprints and site development.

When managing projects, my involvement in the business and the non-profit sectors utilize my networking skills, project management, event planning, developing website and marketing materials and video production. Through Mayoral appointments, I have developed an in depth knowledge of pension funds as a trustee and work with the Pompano Beach EMS Fire Chief on the EMS Advisory Board acting as a liaison between the Department and the City Manager, Mayor and Commissioners.

With the respect of both business leaders and city officials, I have and continue to put together teams for any project. I provide frequent progress reports to management or committee and include details to show a project is on schedule and within budget. I complete research and investigation of real estate for the purpose of putting together files for court representation that include divorce and bankruptcy as well as represent clients in tax hearings most recently lowering the clients' tax consequence by over 60%.
