The past several years I began by working with Ford managing a fuel cell project here in Florida that was quite successful. This led to the State of Florida asking if I would manage all hydrogen projects within Florida which I did.
Due to severe budget cuts, the project funding was eliminated thereby eliminating my position.
Approximately 2 years ago I made the mistake of thinking I wanted t try something different than the car business. I'm sure everyone will agree, once this business is in your blood getting it out is unlikely.
My background includes service management for Ford, Chevrolet and Director of Fixed Ops for a multi franchise dealership, (GMC, Pontiac, Buick and Toyota) In every instance I was able to effect changes that resulted in positive substantial impacts to the bottom line.
I'm a solid operator with a highly developed ability to attract, identify, develop and keep high performing people. I build loyal high performance teams.
I'm a sincere, genuine manager skilled in clearly communicating performance objectives, empowering staff to succeed, and maintaining dignity and self-respect of disciplined or terminated personnel.
Recognized as a consistent top performer with track record of meeting aggressive projections under challenging circumstances.
I'm a diplomatic and engaging communicator with a proven ability to quickly establish credibility with customers, cultivate trusting staff relationships and interface with senior executives.
My family and I are in the position to relocate anywhere for the right opportunity.
