count me in Business Excellence Challenge-Business Excellence Professional
My entire career has been as an effective executive and change agent with a passion for organizational performance excellence and continuous improvement.
Most recently, I applied my high energy to institutionalizing continuous improvement as Vice President for Business Excellence at my last company, where they were recognized three times by Industry Week as having North America’s Top Ten Best Plants.
I have focused on the achievement of World-Class performance within organizational constraints.
This includes a proven track record of high performance in Organizational/Process Improvement, P&L impact, and Customer Satisfaction/Engagement.
I am highly adept in Customer Focused/Service-based Six Sigma Quality (Transactional and Traditional), Lean, ISO 9000, Continuous Improvement, Statistical Analytics, Industrial Engineering, Government and Regulatory Compliance (e.g. SEC, HIPPA, SOX), Operations and Production Management, Human Resource Development, Cost of Quality, Training and Education, Business Analysis, Project Management, Strategic Planning, Systems Design, and Optimization.
I have led deployment of lean and six sigma multiple times, have led organizations to ISO 9000 certification and state quality awards, and have earned multiple quality certifications from the American Society for Quality.
As a result of successfully achieving the vision and strategic initiative of institutionalizing continuous improvement, and the decline in the financial services market, my position was recently eliminated.
I am currently considering my career goals and developing a strategy for my next problem solving opportunity in building a quality culture and process within an organization, and leading that organization to the next level.
I am targeting the medical services, financial services, consulting and manufacturing industries.
I have demonstrated that my skills provide value across industry segments, and I am unique in that I have applied quality and productivity improvement approaches, with success, in office environments as well as in manufacturing environments.
