I have worked in 3PL Distribution and as a Direct Importer. During this time I have been an Assistant Warehouse Manager for 11 years , and more recently a Senior Operations Manager for 13 years. I have a good reputation for resolving problems and positively impacting overall morale and productivity. I pride myself in being able to provide clear guidance and direction to meet goals. I have experience working across many departments in operations. With this in mind, I am able to bring other Mgrs. and Supr. together for collaboration of shared goals. With my last employer, I reported to the Director of Operations to strategize development and execute planning. My oversight covers many aspects of Warehousing and Distribution. These include but are not limited to Receiving, Storage and Inventory, Special Projects, Pulling and Packing Orders, and the Shipping Dept.
