Dear Ms. Marks:
I am interested in employment as Procurement Manager with Trendset Products. As a leading consumer product company, I felt that you may have a need for procurement professional with strong reengineering skills and extensive experience in large-scale purchases of flexible packaging and corrugated supplies.

- Negotiated 25% reduction of corporate knock-down costs through long term contract ($20 million savings)
- Implemented JIT contract for shrimp wrap purchases saving $15 million annually.
- Pioneered "shared purchases " concept, uniting corrugated purchase of 4 companies resulting in $10 million annual cost savings.
- Led reengineering study of vital supply purchasing, identifying over $80 million potential annual savings through implementation revolutionary procurement concepts.
Should you feel that I could contribute added value to your organization, I would appreciate if you would call me at (306)-222-5555. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss career prospects with your organization.
