Interested in joining an organization such as yours in a senior-level position, I have included my resume for your consideration.
My roles have ranged from managing daily accounting activities to overseeing complete financial operations for a $290M organization with offices in the US and Canada. My location for the last 11 years was in Jersey. I’m willing to relocate. My list of accomplishments includes: • Increasing profitability by lowering banking fees and payroll processing fees. • Facilitating corporate success by preparing and completing internal audits. • Delivering major cost savings by negotiating better terms with vendors. • Enhancing profits by reducing major G&A expenses across multiple departments. • Producing profit increases by reducing write-offs 10%. • Improving cash flow by achieving a 15% increase in collections on accounts >90 days overdue.
