Career Highlights and Strengths: Grew sales and revived staff morale of an underperforming Bike Gallery location in less than one year. I have been instrumental in the successful opening and continuing operation of two concept stores featuring the Specialized bike brand. I understand well the importance of superior customer service and have successfully grown sales through recruitment, training, and retention of exceptional staff. Leading from the front is the cornerstone of my management style and I take pride in creating a high level of moral within my staff. I maintain positive, productive relationships with my clients and vendors. Additionally my practical background in facility maintenance, developing and meeting budget goals, and program creation offers versatility that is critical to businesses today.
