I enjoy identifying what actions are required to achieve a company’s financial objectives. I have found this helps bring together the various functions around a common goal. It drives alignment on the key priorities and performance metrics. I have led projects across manufacturing, supply chain, and inventory management.
I have had extensive experience developing reporting packages that help all levels in an organization understand how a business is performing and why. The objective is to create a simple and transparent package that allows the team to quickly understand financial results.
I have led several projects focused on optimizing a company’s margins. The projects have focused on assortment optimization, pricing analytics, promotional mix, and manufacturing cost reduction. These initiatives have helped companies grow profits during times when revenue growth was challenging.
