Engineering Program Manager

Dear Potential Employer

As a goal-focused, performance-driven leader, I am writing in response to your search for an Engineering Program Manager, Engineering Functional Manager, Quality Assurance Manager and Manufacturing Engineering Manager. I have held all these positions at one time or another over my 25+ years of working in the Space and Defense Industry. I have also supported major aerospace corporations as Director of Engineering, in case you are also looking for professionals to fill positions at Executive levels. My professional background is very diverse and I can perform very well on both sides of a matrix management structure. My background also includes a Masters of Science degree in Material Science and Metallurgical Engineering from UC Berkeley, along with transferable TS SSBI w/ CI Poly and DoD Top Secret Security clearances which are very useful in developing new products and having access to work in classified work environments to get the required information as needed to perform a specific assignment or function.
Throughout my career, I gained extensive experience in Six Sigma black belt methodologies, as well as skills to perform in diverse facets of the electronic manufacturing, space and defense industries. Specifically, I also attained a breadth of hands on knowledge in semiconductor process engineering, hybrid design and manufacturing, troubleshooting, failure analysis, M&P and Program Management Best Practices. I also have allot of experience writing and reviewing proposals (solicited or unsolicited) for major subsystem or system engineering requirements. Included in my Program Manager skill set are Risk and Opportunities Management, as well as Earned Value Measuring Systems for cost and schedule controls. My progressive growth developed by taking positions in both sides of the matrix management structure (Functional and Program management) within major organizations such as International Rectifier, Northrop Grumman Space Technology, Raytheon Company and L3 Communications Corporation.
As a hands on manager I always was involved in the development and implementation of high-performance electronic and mechanical systems, including their manufacturing infrastructures and while qualifying the hardware for their respective field applications, I also have the technical knowledge to resolve complex engineering issues to ensure hardware designs remain viable and producible. My proven ability to meet project costs, maximize earnings and schedule goals while streamlining technological needs enables me to produce long-term results in challenging environments for the benefit of my employer. I also enjoy training other engineers to help them develop their own career paths for personal growth within the organization.

Is the current position available in California? If not, does the position come with a rellocation package?
