I have demonstrated the ability to oversee vital projects across a range of industries consistently resulting in operational enhancements that increase profitability, efficiencies, quality and customer satisfaction. I analyze problems, propose effective solutions, and deliver complex projects, which exceed corporate objectives in both public and private sector.

My key strengths include:
Leading multiple complex projects simultaneously through initiation, planning, execution and closeout.
Monitoring and controlling project schedules, budgets and quality to deliver desired results.
Eliciting requirements and identifying objectives that truly meet business needs.
Prioritizing projects within the portfolio to deliver the greatest impact with available resources.

I am known as a natural leader who is hard working, intelligent and gets the job done. My amicable communication style and practical management approach consistently win consensus, improve productivity and deliver end results.
My credentials include PMP certification, an MBA in Finance/Accounting from Regis University, and a BA in Management from the University of Maryland, UC.

SELECTED ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Established PMO to reduce corporate risk. Inchcape’s corporate projects were delivered inconsistently and with little accountability. Authored/established project management methodology, Project Management Office, and staff training. Increased efficiencies and accountability lowering overall project costs and reducing corporate project risks.

Implemented pre-delivery quality program. Inchcape’s Subaru customers were unhappy with vehicle delivery. Analyzed dealers’ processes/profitability, determining centralized in-house service was more cost effective. Freed up dealers’ service bays for more profitable services while increasing Inchcape’s revenue $5.8M with processing fees.

Launched new online banking system. Elevation’s tech-savvy customers demanded state-of-the-art remote banking capabilities. Led a cross-functional team to integrate and operationalize Intuit’s online banking platform including iPhone and Android Smartphone apps resulting in improved customer satisfaction and NPS scores.

Spearheaded new energy lending program. Elevation’s won a Denver/Boulder RFP to team with their energy efficiency initiatives. Created an integrated system to maximize a DOE grant and meet all program requirements including online paperless application process, flexible underwriting guidelines and an extensive marketing campaign. The project made $35 million available to the public for energy saving initiatives.
