My career has been focused on leading and growing teams of individuals toward goals through genuine inspiration and personal development. Having worked exclusively in fast-paced service-centric industries, I enjoy the rush and challenge of delivering the best guest or customer experience.Throughout my career I have led teams through restructuring, renovations, new product introductions, new facility openings and new business alignments. I specialize in inspiring confidence in my team, by demonstrating that I support them, will hold them and others accountable for their contribution to results and getting the job done. The people I work with feel consistent appreciation and receive credit, when credit is due.I am a globally-minded leader. Looking beyond the impact of my team to ensure that we align with the overall organizational direction.Beyond the people connection, I am very focused on the financial results attributed to my team. Consistently measuring and benchmarking our results against other highly successful teams, both within our organization and other industry leaders. My team is always working hard to drive top line results, whilst maintaining tight controls on the expense portion of our business to ensure bottom line success and growth.My career will continue to provide me with a good challenge and gratification from being successful. I will work for an organization that is people-centric (both employees and customers) and that offers the right balance of support, challenge, creativity, accountability and compensation.Specialties: Developing & leading highly motivated teamsInspiring others to progress & get resultsManaging expenses & driving top line revenuesTalent management (selection, training, development, performance management)Establishing & providing first-class Guest & Customer expereincesTalent Development (leading workshops, goal-setting, providing follow-up, maintaining accountability to personal growth development)Succession planning (all levels of organization)Occupational Health & Safety
