Dear Sir/Dear Madam:
Impacting corporate profitability and overall operations through skillful alignment of financial resources with corporate objectives are just two of the many ways I served an instrumental role in the success of past employers. With more than 20 years of combined experience leading all aspects of corporate finance to ensure effective cash flow, investments and revenue growth, I am now seeking the opportunity to join your team in an executive-level position such as Chief Financial Officer or Controller.
My roles in the past ranged from Assistant Vice President and Controller to Chief Financial Officer. A sample of my highlights while serving in the above and additional positions includes:
Saving $1.8 million by researching and implementing a tax saving transaction.
Restructuring offshore subsidiaries, closing certain operations and forming new companies under more favorable taxation circumstances.
Identifying an embezzlement that happened prior to employment and negotiating a claim within the bond coverage.
Completely automating office and plant operations by implementing a LAN-based ERP and accounting system as well as technologies such as radio frequency, bar coding, standardized email and an EDI system.
The above briefly summarizes my strengths in executive-level financial management. For a more detailed presentation of my skills and background, please review the enclosed resume and feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your consideration.
