Director of Operations
Swank Audio Visuals
Audio visuals is a unique field that requires both strong customer relations skills and a high technical aptitude. Being able to understand a clients vision and turn it into a reality within a hotel environment and with limited budgets requires strong communication skills, exceptional competence for creative problem solving, resourcefulness, and an ability to work side by side with people of all backgrounds. My past clients include everyone from CEO's of Fortune 100 companies to administrative assistants at small independent firms, from brain surgeons to auto mechanics, and from technological leaders to pharmaceutical companies. I am extremely successful at delivering a high production value while in a hospitality environment because I have the ability to quickly decipher a persons wants, needs, and motivations and adapt accordingly. As a director, I understand the importance of being flexible with my communication style and operational schedule on a daily basis. Below are a few of the responsibilities and accomplishments from my time in the audio visual industry.
~ Lead a team of sales people, creative designers, and technicians.
~ Successfully oversaw hundreds of projects and productions from inception through completion.
~ Simultaneously managed multiple projects while ensuring the integrity of each event.
~ Directed day to day operations for a $2 million a year business.
~ Developed and maintained relationships with clientele
~ Maintained the highest profitability level out of over 350 locations for 3 consecutive years.
