I did it starting with recruiting the right talent ,designing the infrastructure, building applications with IT and partnering with global teams. It was up and running within 30 days exceeded the target of 90 days.

Mitigating supply chain risk for Fortune 500 and military organizations, I saved over $1 MM annually. I negotiate contracts, I price services and I measure performance with metrics. Leading global teams with over 90 members, I foster a culture of honoring diverse thinking and exposing talent. MY STRENGTHS Promoted twice, my direct reports tell me that my integrated view and laser sharp planning is what helps them raise performance.
