Service Description

The corporate mission of Sigma Expertise is to offer timely contract or permanent services to business managers and owners who lack the skills, knowledge or resources (human or financial) to successfully lead a project from start to finish. Our area of expertise focuses on, but is not limited to, sales, marketing, business development and general management.

My 12 years of management experience in the food manufacturing industry allowed me to get fully involved in all the vital functions of a business. I possess extensive knowledge in sales, marketing, brokerage, operations, budgets, etc.

Being perfectly bilingual, I single handedly oversaw the preparation, set-up, participation and follow-up of over thirty international trade shows.

I was actively involved in the negotiation and integration of several acquisitions, monthly sales/operations meetings and strategic planning conferences.

I am confident that the sum of my skills, experience and knowledge will be an important asset to many business managers.

The values of Sigma Expertise closely reflect my own deep personal beliefs in being ethical, hard working, transparent, multi-tasking and professional.
