Goal Oriented 

I work diligently to manage major projects with strict adherence to quality assurance and legal and regulatory compliance. Additionally, I consistently drive profitability through effective preparation and evaluation of proposals, negotiations, contract terms, and analysis of materials, labor hours and rates. I've executed analysis of large-scale supplier proposals, reviewed 3-year history of BOM, selected 80% of proposed material costs, and verified against current purchase orders such as direct labor runs from job shop orders for same and / or similar parts. ​Going above and beyond my goals is a standard I hold myself to on a day to day basis.

Man of Integrity 

In my personal and professional lives, I am consistent, dependable and accurate in carrying out responsibilities to a successful conclusion. I hold myself to meeting all my responsibilities promptly and efficiently. During my time as a Subcontract Auditor, I prepared and coordinated audit program for suppliers, analyzed supplier proposals of $750k+ assessing reasonableness of proposed costs including reviewing 3-year history of BOM, selecting 80% of proposed material costs, and verifying against current purchase orders. Successfully,  I completed audit for short term contract correcting errors and reducing costs 3% by identifying improper recording of indirect expenses as direct.
