Experienced Strategic Sourcing & Category Manager, with a passion for Quality, New Product and new Supplier Development!
First let me state right off - I want to be a part of an energized global organization, and I want to work for you!
You've seen my resume of achievements and skills, but what you really want to know is simple - How can I best utilize my skills to forge trusted internal and external relationships in order to ensure cost avoidance, drive Best-In-Class Quality for New Product Development programs & also fully manage life-cycle programs?
During the last 15+ years I have proven that I possess forward-looking thinking & strategic creativity - both at the Supplier Development, Supplier Quality, Global Category Management and Strategic Sourcing Program Management levels. I have consistently found that when things seem to be at an impasse, with teamwork and trust, a third creative solution can break the logjam and get things back on track.
I have proven that quickly becoming either a Subject Matter Expert or highly knowledgeable manager for multiple categories also allows me to both provide leadership & support to members of my team within Procurement, and act as a strong team member for New Product Development programs.
My years of experience in both Strategic Supplier Selection and Supplier Development Engineer have helped me hone my negotiation, Six-Sigma, and Continuous Improvement skills, which translate into better terms and stronger relationships with the right suppliers from the start.
I really want to be part of the your organization & look forward to speaking to you further about how I can put my skills to work for you.
