Dear Mr. Woods:
Please accept the enclosed resume for the position of Procurement Officer in your company. Should you have an appropriate opportunity, I think you will find my credentials
I hold an M.B.A. in Industrial Management from the University of Michigan and an undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering from the same school. My professional experience includes 15 years in procurement management.
I have an excellent track record in orchestrating major cost reduction and efficiency improvement in the various procurement functions I have managed. My forte has been successfully negotiating major long-term raw materials and vital supplies contractors that have saved millions in dollars and helped my employer maintain competitive edge. Introduction of JIT delivery has substantially reduced in-house inventory investments and freed up nearly $20 million in operating capital for my current employer. Perhaps I could make similar contribution to your company.
My compensation currently stands at $130,000 per year, and I am open to relocation with the exception of the East Coast metropolitan area.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss further with you how I could contribute to Dekkar Brothers. I can be reached at 313-436-8450 in the evening hours.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to the possibility of meeting with you.
