Key Skills

Manufacturing and Supply Chain Cost Reductions – I’m experienced in driving continuous improvement, reducing conversion cost and optimizing overall supply chain costs.   Another key strength is collaborating with marketing on new product launches and product changes, to find and evaluate options to achieve margin targets.

Optimized Product Sourcing – In analyzing total cost of goods and sourcing locations, determining the best strategic and cost optimized solution and then driving forward the decisions that reduce cost while providing the best quality,  I have a wealth of experience of leading product sourcing studies.

Team Development – World  class results are achieved and sustained by high performing teams.  I thrive on building and restructuring teams, including recruiting and developing the right team members into a productive, cohesive unit.
