Dear Members of the Selection Committee:
As a highly accomplished sales and marketing professional who has
been promoted through the ranks, I have a valuable background that
encompasses financial risk management and finance program
sales/marketing roles. Within each of these I have successfully
spearheaded department launches, developed and expanded business, and
managed key relationships.
Currently I serve in the Special Assets Group for Commercial Finance
with BMW Group Financial Services. I coordinate the development of a
new group that determines and responds to very high-risk (multi-
million dollar) commercial finance relationships and related customer
issues resulting from financially strained dealers. This has been a
very demanding and multi-disciplined position requiring strong

of 6 separate policies.
My prior roles included substantial leadership positions and
contributions within the company's ranks while broadening my range of
skills. These skills involved key areas such as managing sales and
logistics operations, oversight of program planning and
implementation and coordinating and guiding groups in sales/marketing
strategies within a fast-paced and highly competitive metropolitan
market. A quantifiable breakdown of my early career history and
contributions that I made include the following:
