Dear Mr. CARTER:
In today's intensely competitive marketplace, efficient and effective sales operations are critical to a company's success. The ultimate success of any sales operation requires a manager who can develop, implement, and optimize sales processes designed to achieve strategic corporate goals by enabling and empowering the sales teams.
My strengths lie in building quality processes that get the job done and building consensus within crossfunctional teams. My track record as outlined in the enclosed resume demonstrates that I can
- Streamline existing processes and design new processes aligned with corporate infrastructure and existing organizations.
- Build a shared vision and consensus between cross-functional organizations and vested parties.
- Develop business models, market and sales strategies, policies, and organizational structure.
- Clarify and strengthen the organization's core values and principles to facilitate growth, profitability, and employee performance and satisfaction.
I attribute my success to my ability to assume leadership and turn around underperforming organizations by developing/sharing best practices that increase quality, effectiveness, and productivity. Equally important is my talent for developing effective cross-functional relationships. You will find that I am very skilled at developing sound action plans, as well as administering and following through on those plans. I strive to build and maintain a principle-centered environment that preserves the company's core values while stimulating growth and profitability.
I am eager to make an immediate and enduring contribution to StorageTek. I welcome the opportunity to explore my potential contributions.
Thank you for your consideration; I look forward to speaking with you soon.
