Purchasing Manager / Buyer
Written by Rene' Hart 

123 MAIN STREET, ANYTOWN, USA * (941) 555-5555


Do you cringe at the high costs your company incurs for goods and services?

Do you need someone who will maximize vendor resources, working hard to secure lower-cost, longer-term contracts with your suppliers?

Do you need someone onboard who will immediately slash supply costs and streamline purchasing operations?

With more than 20 years in purchasing, retail sales management, store expansions, and new product research and market launch, I believe I may offer just what you're missing.

In my career with Major Company, a premier auto parts and accessories distributor, I have:

  • Directed procurement of over $200M of goods and services, accounting for 60% of MC's total purchasing budget.
  • Launched 3 private label programs, garnering $500K in additional profits during the first year of distribution.
  • Recouped $300K in stolen merchandise and prosecuted the employee responsible.
  • Generated $3M in savings by cultivating partnerships and negotiating long-term contracts with key suppliers.

With the right opportunity, I'd be perfectly willing to relocate. With regard to salary, I understand that flexibility is essential, and would consider a compensation package appropriate for a person with my outstanding qualifications and dynamic track record of accomplishments.

If you're tired of seeing your company's profits slip through your fingers, call me today to schedule a business meeting. I can't wait to discuss how I can benefit your purchasing operation right away, and can be reached at (941) 555-5555 to arrange our interview.
