Dear Sir or MAdam,
Having been a Vice President/ General Manager and recently as a Sales and Business Analyst for one of the largest agricultural product manufacturing companies in the States with more than $217 million in sales, I have been responsible for the management, Sales and Production planning, team building and analysis. I would like to build on this experience with my next endeavor.
Skills which would be of immediate benefit would include:
Management. Managed more than 185 employees through two general managers, a $3.8 million payroll budget and 4 million nursery units of production. Was responsible for designing, planning, budgeting and managing one of the largest commercial plant tissue culture laboratories in the world. Implemented a TQM and ZDB (zero based defects) program. Increased production by 30%. Reduced purchasing by 15% by creating competitive bidding among all vendors and getting the best value of grow products.
Sales and Operations experience. I was in charge of developing sales planning of more than $160MM of wholesale products at over seven production facilities. I had consistently improved at all levels so that quality, accuracy and speed of information meet corporate expectations. I have significantly improved sales and production planning, implemented processes through teamwork and effectively improved communications.
Computer systems. As a “power user” for SAP-BW, I was responsible for developing and implementing “front-end” sales reports, queries and data verifications. Introduced a computer system and integrated production plans, scheduling, sales and unit cost analysis, marketing plan and payroll analysis. Experience in experimental design, statistical analysis, spreadsheet analysis, relational database management, etc.
I would like to put these skills, and others described on the resume, to work for you.
I would like to talk to you about your recommendations and projected needs. Could we arrange a time for a meeting?
