Dear Hiring Manager,

As a hands-on Controller for a medium-sized logistics company in Central California, I was responsible for providing financial leadership for the company and directing the activities of the financial and accounting functions. My primary duties included supervision of the accounting staff, implementation of policies and procedures, conducting periodic audits, compliance with industry and governmental rules and regulations, comprehensive cost accounting and financial reporting to senior management.

What I can provide to the organization are my strengths in analyzing and resolving operational issues while continuing to perform the day-to-day activities and responsibilities of the position. My primary objective is to evaluate and restructure the accounting system to facilitate accurate and timely financial reporting in accordance with GAAP and industry standards. I also strive to be proactive in developing positive working relationships with other department staff and senior management to effectively streamline the financial operations of the Corporation.

In addition to my accounting and finance experience, my credentials include a BA in Accounting and MBA in Finance. I am also a Certified Management Accountant (CMA), focusing on business accounting versus public accounting. I have always maintained a strong work ethic and function well under pressure when necessary to meet company deadlines. My experience in advanced Excel spreadsheet analysis is considered highly proficient; I also have experience with other MS Office software as well as several accounting packages, including QuickBooks.

My salary requirements are negotiable depending on the duties and responsibilities of the position. I am also willing to work on a contract basis if this is compatible with your hiring policies.
