Financial Analyst

Dear Hiring Manager

I have a BBA in Finance and a background in accounting and analysis with over 4 years experience with SAP. In addition to my fifteen plus years in the business community I am also a Microsoft Office certified expert in Excel, Word and PowerPoint. My most recent employment was as a Project Controller at Siemens through a staffing firm. Prior to that I was a contract Project Analyst at ExxonMobil in the Greenspoint area which ended July 31, 2008. Prior to ExxonMobil I was at Halliburton for over 2 years as an Accountant. At Halliburton I was responsible for creating all accounting reports for upper management. I was also responsible for forecasting and planning for support services. The reports explained gross expenses, labor hours, shipments and trend analysis that required the use of massive Excel workbooks. As a cost analyst at Hewlett Packard I worked with massive Excel workbooks that linked to a large PowerPoint presentation that was distributed to the financial community, commodity managers and sales staff. As a Financial Analyst at Getronics I was responsible for budgeting and forecasting, variance analysis, month-end and year-end closing and ad hoc reporting.
Communication skills were of major importance in all my positions. As a team player, I maintained excellent inter-company relations with a friendly, courteous, helpful attitude. These positions required working independently as well as on a team. I am accustomed to working in a fast paced environment where deadlines are critical. Additionally, I have done extensive bank reconciliations, accounts payable, accounts receivable, financial reporting, journal entries, accruals and general ledger reconciliation.. I am very detailed oriented and take pride in the work that I do. Among my other attributes, I am mature and possess strong organizational and analytical skills.

Warmest Regards,
Spring, TX
