Experienced, Dynamic and Impactful Operations Leader.

Today is better than yesterday, but not as good tomorrow.

Accomplished, multi-faceted Logistics and Supply Chain Operations Manager seeking new challenges with a company in need of someone with exceptional planning, leadership, and management abilities. Taking command of an operation or project, then guiding it to new performance levels, is my greatest strength. I am a performance driven individual that consciously looks toward fostering and building strong and trusting partnerships with subordinates, peers, higher leaders and external business partners. I am a strong, confident and effective leader and teacher, that treats others with firmness, fairness, dignity and respect. I bring structure into my business endeavors in an effort to maximize individual development and team performance. My overall objective has always been to meet my goals and, to the extent of my capabilities, "wow" who ever my customer happens to be. My philosophy is to always strive to improve myself and make things better than before, no matter how daunting that task may be.

Humble & Honest

I believe honesty is the single most important attribute in every relationship; business and personal. In a noble manner I do what it takes to succeed as long as it is honest, ethical, moral, and legal. Approaching all situations with a fair and understanding viewpoint is a must. I am someone who does not dwell on job titles or statuses. I concentrate on my responsibilities and believe in taking accountability and having integrity.

Performance Focused

Being results-oriented, I pursue assignments with passion and perseverance, laser-focused until I achieve the desired outcome. I enjoy unique tasks and am not afraid of a challenge, because even if I do not know the answer I see it as an opportunity to learn something new. I am always eager to discover something different and am constantly evolving so that I may grow and develop new skills.

Disciplined & Committed

Being an over achiever and very a goal-oriented individual, I never back down from a challenge. I enjoy the teachable moments in life that make me a better worker and person. I am a very hardworking and committed professional, and am good at identifying inefficiencies within a company.
