In Transition

I have successfully leveraged my background in manufacturing, government and accounting management into a successful career implementing financial and enterprise systems for some of the world's largest corporations and government/military organizations. In one organization alone I was able to save $30 million from the bottom line in a single year through restructuring and modest changes to accounting management, information systems and budgetary policies.

I am both a strategic and analytical individual who selects good people and then assists them to be successful in my organizations. I maximize talent. Individual skills include business management, enterprise systems implementation and MS Office tools.
