Re: Maintenance Manager, HR Manager, Masters Degree Education

The expertise I bring to your organization my ability to quickly assess, evaluate, plan and execute. I have a reputation for complete focus on the mission-at-hand and a professional bearing that consistently demonstrates calm and purpose. Whether challenged to manage day-to-day activities or to deal with emergency situations, I time and again, deliver strong performance results.

Since leaving the Military, I have continued my education in Industrial Maintenance and Management to support my career goals. I am goal-directed and results-driven with strong and decisive leadership skills.

Strong Leadership:

  • Management of staff of 44
  • Federal, State, and Local regulations
  • Policies and procedures
  • Hands-on supervision and proper delegation

Organization and Time Management Experience:

  • Day-to-day scheduling
  • Emergency situations
  • Safety inspections / audits
  • Facilities Maintenance (appliance, electrical and plumbing)

My success has always been achieved through the development of teams. Creating a mission-ownership in each member through incentive and recognition resulted in many of those whom I have led, to advance to senior leadership roles.As a person who enjoys rolling up my sleeves and digging in, I consistently am acknowledged as the “go-to person”.

Thank you for your interest in my experience.I have attached a detailed resume for your understanding of my knowledge, both in education and experience. I welcome an opportunity to further discuss my qualifications and explore your needs and organizational objectives.Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
