CollapseResponsibilities

In previous positions with ConAgra Foods I contributed significantly to product development efforts as well as top-line and profit growth. Recently, with ConAgra, I worked cross-functionally with R&D, operations, and some of the companys largest national account customers, to pioneer completely new brand platforms. Much of this development was on very aggressive timeframes. Margin and profit improvement being a key goal at ConAgra I worked with R&D and manufacturing to reduce production costs to exceed planned profit metrics.
