                        …nurturing, growing and preserving relationships

Senior leadership across multiple industries describes me as a problem solver - inspirational, relatable,
resourceful, decisive, who delivers results - on time, under budget. I possess a proven track record of opening
new markets with commodity products and various laboratory instruments in various industries.

Management says I am at my best when managing sales teams (from 7 to 18) who deliver immediate results –
increases of 15% to 22% throughout sales plan. My knowledge of strategic planning, distribution start-up, new
product introduction and key account management is unparalleled. Peers describe me as a manager who is
organized, detailed, hardworking and personable. Stakeholders view me as a servant leader –operating with
high integrity and accountability. I enhance stakeholder value by:

        identifying value-added opportunities by leveraging my organizational, operational, technology and
        leadership skills;
        realizing strategic goals by focusing upon people, services/ products, processes, variables and activities;
        encouraging participatory decision-making by brainstorming, collaborating, and delegating and;
        creating alignment by consistent communications and results-oriented actions.

                             CONSISTENT RECORD OF CO NTRIBUTIONS

Stakeholders say I deliver value in three areas:

Leadership – Hands-on, goal-driven style. Clearly articulate goals; allocate appropriate resources. Communicate
key performance indicators and processes to responsible stakeholders. Engage, encourage, and challenge
people to create exceptional outcomes. Diligently monitor critical variables to the plan. Collaborate with
stakeholders to solve problems and realize opportunities. Establish and utilize industry relationships to
understand competitive trends and technologies.

Strategic Planning – Bring an entrepreneurial approach to business development. Identify, analyze and
synthesize relevant data into actionable information for traditional – yet “outside the box” - decision making - at
all levels. Collaborate with stakeholders to both solve problems and realize unarticulated opportunities.

Change Management – Use innovation and technology to maximize efficiencies. Believe all processes should be
effective, continuously monitored and improved to ensure optimum integrity. Integrate systems, data, analysis
and resources that facilitate execution and results at or above expectations.
