Sales / Business
12+ years experience in Customer Service/Sales/Team Work environments.
8+ years experience in management roles. I have worked in several different management roles throughout the years. Some examples are: managing in-house teams of people (from engineers to sales people), managing one large in-house team, and managing teams of engineers globally from an outside vendor.
Commission Based Sales:
6+ years experience in a Commission based sales job. A base salary was given with a commission system based on sales volume in products/services sold and revenue. Sales included products (such as consumer goods, Mortgage and Home Loans, and Corporate products)and services (IT, Finance, and Consulting). Commissions were based on different elements depending on the job. An example could be, as a Personal Banker, I had a sales target of volume of consumer and business accounts sold, and total mortgage and loan amount sold.
4+ years banking experience as Banker, Loan Officer, and in Assets Management
3+ years experience with banking software, teller transactions, and bank operational procedures.
With several years in the sales industry and taking on sales roles in non sales jobs, I have acquired a wide range of skills and techniques I utilize in sales situations (meetings/discussions/contract signings). I have put together several sales campaigns for sales teams as well as develop marketing ideas to further push and grow sales departments within companies.
Business Procedures/Policies and Implementations:
Working for large corporate companies I was able to learn how things need to be done in order to ensure business processes flow effortlessly and efficiently. With my experience working for Disneyland, Apple Computer, and Wells Fargo Bank, I was able to learn business processes and their benefits. I have been able to use this knowledge and implement my own processes and procedures at the other smaller companies I have worked at. I have implemented HR procedures, such as, employee review procedures, employee hire/leave procedures and forms. I have also created employee programs, such as a internship program. I designed the internship program and made all related documents, review processes, road maps for the intern's learning process. While I worked as an IT Divisional Manager, there were basically no systems in place for my department. I created all the systems that are currently in use at my current company which allow the department to be self sufficient and operate at a high level of efficiency.
Consulting / Other
Sole Proprietor Experience:
I have started 3 successful small companies, one which ended up being bought out by an investor. The companies I have started include, a web design company, a hosting company, and a IT consulting company. If you wish to find out more information please email me.
10+ years consulting experience. I started doing consulting work at a very young age, 17 in fact. At age 17 I would consult small businesses and create marketing documents as well as their image on the internet. This later evolved into a registered business.
