Will Relocate:



I have a Bachelors Degree with a wide range of studies, including engineering and management. I graduated from IUPUI in May 2005 while working 50+ hours a week at Aearo Technologies. Along with my education, I also have 13 years of experience in high-paced manufacturing plants. I have excellent interpersonal and communications skills through my work experience, especially the vendors and supply side when I was the product supply analyst at Aearo Technologies. I worked with all the departments across the board along with all of the managers and vp's in multiple plants across the world. Also, I have Six Sigma and lean manufacturing implementation experience. I also am a self starter with a hands-on and go-getter management style. I have excelled and advanced in every position that I held. Looking for a company that will utilize my work experience and Bachelors degree along with my dedication and drive to succeed and make team atmospheres. Also at Aearo Technologies, when I was the Product Supply Analyst, I worked in Cognos, Excel, Word, SAP, and many more software packages. I was certified with Advanced Excel. I have a knack for computers and training on any software is achievable in a short period of time. I am a go getter with a positive attitude, especially when it comes to computer business applications. I have outstanding organizational and multitasking skills along with working under pressure to meets deadlines. At Sussex we have government contracts that could not be late and have an excellent track record of on-time shipments. I am Bilingual in Spanish. It was very advantageous at Sussex because the majority of workers are hispanic. I have acquired my conversational spanish through my work and my wife is hispanic. Also, I studied in college for a couple of years. At Aearo Technologies, it was a very high paced, large volume production lines from start to finish. With Aearo being a 4 shift operation, I had 35 people at one given time on rotational shifts. Sussex was more specialized in the semiconductor electronics industry. It just proves that I can adapt very well and really quickly to any situation. I am a dedicated honest worker that will efficiently hit deadlines with achieving excellent quality.
