Dear Name:

Throughout my management career, I have developed strategies and tactics to drive forward profitable growth, reorganization and change. Each of my employers has faced unique competitive, industry and financial demands. My goal has been to identify and capitalize on opportunities that would allow us to expand, strengthen our financial performance and achieve a strong market position.

Despite the challenge, I have consistently delivered strong financial and operating results:

  • Co-led the turnaround and return to solid performance of a $20 million organization with diversified business units operating in the for-profit and nonprofit industries.
  • Implemented the financial systems, processes and programs to streamline operations, eliminate duplicate functions and deliver solid cost reductions while increasing productivity and sales growth.
  • Restructured/Revitalized core accounting, reporting, cash/investment management, and audit functions for Fortune 500 corporation with both domestic and international business operations.
  • Linked finance and operations, established internal controls and created proactive, bottom line-oriented business units. Positioned organizations for long-term growth and prosperity.

The value I bring to one of your client companies is the breadth of my experience spanning all core business functions with primary focus on operations and finance. My success has been directly attributable to my ability to build consensus, initiate action and deliver results.

If you are working with a client company in need of strong and decisive leadership, I would welcome a personal interview. Please note that I wish to remain in the New England region, and my recent salary has ranged from $125,000 to $140,000. Thank you for your time and consideration.
