Dear Sir or Madam:
I would appreciate to be considered for an executive role or senior management position. I am a high net worth individual searching for the right culture, where ambition and intuitiveness are the main catalysts of progression. My areas of expertise include Executive Management, Operation Management, Human Resources Generalist, Consulting, Real Estate, Personal Management, Hospitality, Food & Beverage, Education, Fund Raising and Health & Fitness.
Throughout my 35-year career, the vast interaction and networking with colleagues, top professionals, experts, educators, entertainment professionals, business owners, CEOs, Presidents, fundraisers, salespeople, employees, family, friends, and associates, has allowed me the tremendous latitude to develop long-term business relationships. At any given time, I am able to draw upon my network and expand my interactions to create new verticals of opportunity. I have acquired this privilege through consistently ethical sales and marketing practices during my career. My diverse career has privileged my expertise in wood working manufacturing, warehousing, restaurants, supermarkets, show business, parks & recreation, health & fitness, professional sports, property management, venture capital, private equity, educational counseling, & personal management
My successes are built on: analytical skills applied to increasing profits; emotional resilience learned from my graduate studies in Counseling and Human Development; and communication skills, managing up, across and down, leading people toward organizational goals together, as evidenced by my leadership of Athletes 2000, restaurant and real estate holdings and charity work.
I am often credited with the ability to ask the right questions. This is because I can see the big picture, think cross-functionally and manage the decision-making process efficiently.
If these are the kinds of skills that can find a home in your organization, please contact me so we can begin further discussions. I can help take a small or mid-sized company to the next level or re-organize the infrastructure to increase the bottom line. I relate effectively to diverse audiences, and I have always enjoyed positive relationships and high retention rates with my employees as well as repeat and referral business with my clients.
The opportunity that I am seeking will offer a negotiable total compensation package that is reasonable and customary to the position, hopefully with benefits and growth with a target in the low to mid six figures. I am thoroughly aware of salary limits and will adjust accordingly. If you have additional questions after you read my resume, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and considerations.
