PRESIDENT, GM OR CORPORATE CHIEF OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
(Currently employed - highly successful)
The $1.2 billion company that I’ve served for four years, first as president of a division, corporate director of strategic planning and currently as director of tier one marketing, has doubled sales, increased profits and market share, and has become a leading automotive player
At a previous company, my marketing leadership and program management direction were equally successful. Earlier, as the program manager I headed that company’s account at Chrysler Corporation. I started out at the same company as a Sales Engineer, responsible for the design and engineering on one project.
I am a member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), Society of Automotive Engineers International (SAE), and of the American Society of Body Engineers (ASBE). Also, I have a Masters of Science degree in Manufacturing Management.

Since that time, I have served as the Director of Corporate Strategic Planning, Competitive Intelligence & Market Research, where I developed an innovative surveying method for the strategic planning process. Currently, I serve as the Director of Marketing for the Tier One Business Unit. I am now seeking a new challenge.
