Greater Chicago Area, United States

I am an author, a John Maxwell certified professional speaker/teacher/coach and consultant with executive level procurement experience specializing in organizational transformations. I offer customized services to organizations interested in achieving excellence, particularly in the area of procurement.

As a procurement professional, I helped organizations increase their procurement group's performance by promoting a culture of continuous improvement, optimizing resources, and maximizing value. I have implemented strategies that resulted in excess of $100MM in savings, increased staff professional certifications, and leveraged vendor relationships to add value to the organization. I am seeking an opportunity to enhance the procurement operation of an organization.

As a hands-on visionary leader, I consistently achieve measurable results. I have expertise in processes improvement, cost reduction strategies, and the creation of collaborative environments driven to achieve excellence. I am a skilled negotiator for high complexity projects; experienced at implementing strategic sourcing and category management,

Also, I am experienced in financial analysis, policy analysis, legislative changes, presentations, training development, business outreach, strategic alliances, strategic planning, conference planning, vendor management, performance metrics, procedures manuals development, mentoring, special projects management, automation, and reorganizations.
