Senior executive experienced in revitalizing performance, providing strategic focus, and positioning large multi-site organizations for success and profitability.
Highly talented, loyal teams are the foundation of a company’s growth. My strengths are in quality customer care, efficient operations, high performance metrics, and strong leadership -- the ingredients that position a company for growth and success. A few notable accomplishments:
> Held full P&L responsibility for more than $3B in revenues, 13,000 employees and 600 retail locations throughout Canada and the United States.
> Successfully merged and completely integrated two culturally diverse companies with more than $3B in combined revenue.
As President of Canadian Operations and concurrently Area Vice President of U.S. Operations for the United States National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car, I was asked to redefine and lead the company’s strategy in the wake of 9/11 and bankruptcy status. Within two years, we posted a profit of $50MM. More recently, as Regional Vice President for the nation’s largest owner of apartment communities, I managed a real estate portfolio valued at $450MM and 54 locations
Most recently, as a COO of a $150MM company with 115 retail locations, I identified expansion opportunities in closed markets and led the acquisition and corporate conversion of a privately held company. In addition, we reorganized the field operation groups and instituted a performance-based culture that improved operating profit by $4.6MM.
Throughout my career, I have been recognized for my leadership abilities and focus in leading company turnarounds.
