My 23 years experience was gained mostly in the highly competitive and demanding automobile industry, working at two very large original equipment manufacturers (OEM), two medium-size Tier 1 suppliers and three start-ups.
The stringent demands of the automotive industry have instilled in me a sense of high precision and team oriented execution.We maneuvered through the constantly changing landscapes by using highly sophisticated controls, technology and scheduling methods to ensure an uninterrupted flow of product and adding new sales channels.
Coaching my teams to prioritize and focus on customer and company value made them successful in delivering on time, to the budget and with high customer and corporate satisfaction.We were able to pinpoint our pricing and thus handle the thin profit margins of the industry. Two vehicles I was a key player on, the Corvette and the Mustang, both won Car of the Year honors.
My teams earned reputations for dependability and professionalism.
I have experience managing multiple levels of people in multiple locations, am a self-starter, have a willingness to travel and a "leadership - by - example" management style.
I am at ease working with, and through, any level employee or customer.
The effectiveness and success of my past is also an example of my keen decision making and presentation skills.
I believe my accomplishments speak for my vision, leadership, organization and strategic skills.
