Service Management:

  • Through hands on training and leadership, consistent improvement in service quality was demonstrated by my work group resulting in 15 station of month awards (8 in district of 30 stations and 7 in region of 80 same size stations) from 2008 to 2013. Was selected for national award based on overall station performance in December 2012. This resulted in significant cash award.
  • Upon arrival in Sierra Vista, station had lost large contract and in jeopardy of losing another. Through implementation of service improvements, increased positive customer relationships and coaching employees, station was able to win back multi million dollar contract with year over year volume increase and save other critical contract from switching to competitor.
  • As new Operations Manager in Sierra Vista (rural station in southern Arizona), analysis of current market challenges showed inability to offer profitable services available in typical large city station. This challenge was overcome by leading cross operations group with ideas to make positive changes for successful implementation of these new services. Sierra Vista market now offers high revenue weekend and early morning services otherwise thought impossible with outstanding service rates including 100% early morning service.

Employee Management:

  • As one of several less tenured Operations Managers at large facility, was specifically selected by upper management to take on project to improve production and morale with low performing disgruntled work group within station. Within ten months of implementation, results of subsequent Employee Feedback Survey showed an improvement of 560%. Received annual achievement awards for three consecutive years based on outstanding survey scores.
  • As Station Manager, recognized for improving operational efficiency by 21.5%, reduction of OT by 50%, increased stops per hour from 8.40 in 2008 to 10.25 in 2013 meanwhile maintaining high work group morale and excellent employee feedback score.

Financial Management:

  • Successfully managed station through economic downturn past 5 years with positive financial results including increased operational efficiency by 20%, reduction of 2 FTE's (full time employee), overtime and controlling expenditures to exceed challenging budget goals every year.
  • When arriving at the Sierra Vista station, it was realized maximum revenue was compromised by missing or illegible invoice documents. Through plan development, training and accountability techniques, invoice documentation rose from 84% accuracy rate to 100% accuracy rate over a three month period which led to increased profits and regional station award.
  • Recognized for greatly surpassing full scale station audit of all operational processes. As result of outstanding score and process improvement, upper management selected me to join audit team to coach peer managers, implement new process ideas and audit locations throughout district.

Overall Management:

  • Majority of accomplishments were achieved during my 5 years as Operations Manager in Sierra Vista, AZ. When I arrived, operation struggled with scheduling, route structure, operational processes, customer service, organization and budget control placing overall performance at bottom of regional and district rankings. Through hard work, massive operational improvements and fostering positive work environment, station has turned into successful, profitable operation and consistently ranks in top echelon of FedEx best stations.
