Summary

Logistics and Supply Chain Management professional with added strengths of Information Technology, with over 10 years of demonstrated success creating and implementing more efficient methodologies for managing inventory and SKU quantities. An effective leader of staff, able to teach and mentor supply chain processes. Highly organized and results focused. Provides an intuitive sense to adapt information technology to the needs of high volume management. With experience in shipping and distribution, understands the requirements for worker productivity and tracking. Uses both oral and written communications to relate effectively with all organizational levels. Throughout my Supply Chain career, I have moved through many positions in the Supply Chain including Distribution Supervisor/Manager, Master Scheduler, Production and Inventory Control Manager, and most recently a Supply Chain Systems Program Manager. I absolutely love combining my learned knowledge of supply chain operations and tactics with the vast field of Information Technology. In the Supply Chain world, there can be millions of pcs of data across multiple systems that in and of themselves are impossible to review on any type of frequency. I provide solutions enabling integration of such systems as well as exception processes in order to streamline the entire supply chain process through the procurement and implementation of “bleeding edge” solutions and technologies.
