Service Description

As a forecast analyst I have managed the organization's forecast planning function(s) for key brands using inventory levels, production speed, and product demand to estimate output. I gathered and evaluated data to develop solutions for increasing production. To effectively do this I worked with production facilities, vendors and customers to determine optimal inventory levels and reduce exposure to over-production and over-stocking. Using my extensive experience and familiarity with the market concepts, practices and procedures, I would rely on my judgment to plan and accomplish goals of the product line, business or company. Working within this function exposed me to various facets of product development, product management, marketing, sales and company direction/strategy.
I have also worked for Bank of America, (a leading player in the financial services industry) in a business development and sales function for several years. My tasks among others included marketing the bank's services to existing and potential customers as well as maintenance and retention of a very large and profitable portfolio.
