My passion is to help others streamline their business process efficiencies for a competitive edge, improving: Profitability; ROI; and Local Employment, thereby stimulating the economy and generating a positive feedback cycle. Every company is a system with administrative processes, service processes, and perhaps manufacturing processes, all of which are subject to improvement. I help you find the areas that need improvement and implement processes that will result in measurable improvements in your business and bottom line.
My endeavor is supported by a Ph.D. in Systems Science: Business Administration including core areas of study in: Finance; Accounting; Operations and Organization Management; and Computer Modeling and Simulation. My training in this program has given me unique insights into how business processes, and the overall structure can be improved for increased business efficiency, employee satisfaction, and customer satisfaction.
In addition to the Ph.D., I have 10 years of experience as VP & Manager of Administration in the financial services sector, where I maintained the infrastructure by managing multiple administration departments including Personnel, General Affairs, Accounting, Budget and Expense for the Seattle and Portland Branches with additional responsibilities as the Business Line Security Officer, Compliance Liaison Officer, Operational Risk Liaison Officer, Department Information Manager, and IT Coordinator.
I also have 20 years of hands on experience in manufacturing, 10 of which were on the manufacturing floor working directly with manufacturing processes, and the other 10 working at a high level within the organization designing costing systems, working with engineering to improve efficiencies, automating processes, and developing new products and the requisite production systems.
My background encourages communication and collaboration with employees at all levels of the organization to promote effective implementation of efficiencies throughout the system, while increasing employee satisfaction and productivity. When I work with you, I will help you streamline your business into an efficient organization that increases your ROI and productivity, while making your clients happy with the results. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
