For the last 17 years, I have been performing management consulting assignments that primarily focus on improving the Finance function at some of the largest multinational companies in the world.Included in this body of work are such firms as JC Penney, Michelin Tires, and Aviva Insurance.In short, this experience has given me a unique perspective on how the Finance function operates and can apply better practices to improve their service delivery within a company.
Whether my assignments have been to recommend a new service delivery strategy involving worldwide or corporate reorganizations or to improve the forecasting, budgeting and close processes or simply to reduce accounts payable labor efforts, I have learned each company is different and requires a custom roadmap to solve their problems as a whole.
The development of a collaborative team effort to run and improve a Finance function has been the key to my success.Therefore, I enjoy working with and leading teams of professionals to solve business problems. When focused on solving a particular problem, I like to lead a team through the change process until actual results are achieved. I am tenacious at gaining management "buy in" for improvement opportunities identified and do not lose focus of the expected results.
My specialty is analyzing a process, organization, or technology problem, identifying the benefits that multiple solutions can address, developing an implementation plan, followed by implementing that plan to achieve measureable results.Additionally, my knowledge of best practices within the Finance function is second to none and add a level of quality and thoroughness that have made me successful in the international marketplace.
