Core Accomplishments
Operations Management:
For several years People For People, Inc. had not conducted an audit of vendors or services agency-wide.  Because the agency had separate federal and state contracts, the misinterpretation of the segregation of funds had accounting paying for duplicative services by contract.  By conducting a physical plant inventory, analysis of vendor services, I was able to dovetail positions realizing a cost savings in payroll of 20%. 
By re-negotiating contracts for the entire agency, and calculating a cost allocation plan to more adequately charge by percentage, the common area costs, and more general costs to the agency, e.g., insurance, utilities, communications, etc., we were abler to adequately track costs to the appropriate costs centers, and to contract funding. The removal of duplicative services saved our agency $250K over the first six months of the year.  
The second major problem was a high and aging accounts payable. Costs had not been adequately controlled; PFP was paying premium charges for services they either did not receive, or no longer needed. I was able to negotiate and settle with vendors for aging accounts payable for pennies on the dollar, and reduce our accounts payable from $1M to $450K by year-end.  
Last, because of the adjustments in human capital, we were able to achieve better performance outcomes in each contract. Our adjudicated youth program enrollment increased form 50% to 115% enrollment, completions increased from 40% to 75%, and 65% found employment within 2 months of leaving the program, and increase of 20% from previous recorded outcomes. Our workforce development contract with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania increased from 15% to 38% in completed benchmarks.
Human Resources:
  • Spearheaded research, and implemented a human resources information system, (HRIS), realizing continuous training  to help improve the understanding of job function, and performance reporting. 
  • Achieved expanded health insurance coverage to include AD&D, life insurance, STD, LTD, and dental for less than the price of the previously held sole health insurance coverage while reducing the cost of employee salary deductions by more than 50%, and co-pay deductions by 10%.
  • Assessed and implemented dental benefits from an insurance company that gave an ancillary benefit of college tuition credits for children of covered employees.  Credits collected from 7th – 12th grades.
Staff Development:
Launched well-received program of professional development courses for all staff. Mentored and coached employees resulting in a 20% increase in productivity.​​
