Jessica Claire
Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94105 (555) 432-1000,

My diverse career spans over 20 years in business operations and project development and management, combined with public and customer relations including, among others, community organizations, nonprofits, civic organizations, and state and federal agencies.

I have developed and executed business growth and service expansion plans for both small and large corporations, and have extensive experience writing financial plans, growth projections, staffing and personnel needs, and market opportunities and challenges.

I am a growth-oriented, team-oriented, and service oriented manager, and have well-documented experience in assembling, leading, and working within teams, consistently producing sharpened and productive professionals capable of supplying superior service and information to customers and stakeholders, while identifying the best systems for efficient and judicious work.

My project and managerial experience is hands on and interactive, while maintaining meticulous management of business strategies, budgets, scheduling, and personnel effectiveness.

My greatest achievements in business management come through gaining the trust and respect of staff, contractors, the community, and ultimately customers and clients. I continuously pursue the idea that repeat business combined with superior "word of mouth" referrals are keys to success and business growth.

As a project manager, I "went through the books" and uncovered about $300,000 of "backlogged" projects that I was able to assign and complete, creating that much untouched revenue that had been ignored for months or more.

My diverse background in consulting, research, and higher education has allowed me to integrate excellent written and oral communication skills. My innate ability to assemble, lead, and work within teams has consistently produced sharpened and productive professionals capable of supplying superior products and services, and identify of the best systems for efficient, pleasant and judicious environments.
