Senior Level Management

Dear Name:

I have had a successful career as President, COO and Vice President of Sales & Marketing for several major corporations. Most recently, I played a key role in the start-up of an advertising promotional firm, rapid growth of an emerging Internet venture, and aggressive market expansion of a specialized global manufacturer.

To each, I have provided the strategic and tactical leadership, addressing unique challenges and delivering solid financial gains. In fact, in all instances, I was asked to join the senior management team in a permanent role. Unfortunately, none of these positions was the "right" opportunity.

My goal is a senior-level position where I can provide corporate development, marketing and/or operating leadership. The breadth of my experience is extensive and includes:

  • Full P&L and operating management responsibility at the corporate and divisional levels for major consumer packaged goods, durable goods and house wares/hardgoods businesses.
  • Oversight of countless product development, commercialization, global manufacturing and market launch programs.
  • Expertise in new business development, strategic marketing, and leadership of multi-channel sales and distribution networks.
  • Aggressive control of accelerating operation, marketing and overhead costs with consistent improvements in net profit contributions.

I would welcome the chance to explore any current search assignments you feel appropriate for a candidate with my qualifications. Please note that I wish to remain in the Washington/Baltimore region. Thank you.
