Experienced Executive Assistant considering a move back to Iowa (Chicago)

available weekdays
education completed: masters

Hiring Manager:

I am interested in a well-paying Executive Assistant position at your company. In addition to successfully managing an office staff for the past five plus years, I also believe that currently assisting a busy President/Owner and prior to that serving as a pastor has prepared me to excel in a variety of Executive Assistant and Management Jobs.

As Director of Operations and Executive Assistant to the President of a well established company of forty years I have renegotiated or changed almost all of our vendor relationships saving us a total sum of approximately $250,000 over the past five years. I have created training procedures for the staff I hired as well as created and implemented procedures to best serve our customers. I successfully led our company through a randomly selected state audit while overseeing an escrow account, operating account, condo association account, and two commission accounts as well as creating, implementing, and maintaining office policies and procedures for state compliance. I played an integral role in carrying out price changes to our customers while simultaneously maximizing company profits, satisfying franchise requirements, and retaining customers. I keep our offices organized, supplies stocked, calendars updated, and training on point. I think three steps ahead and solve problems either before they occur or in the heat of a perceived crisis by utilizing my communication skills and analytical-thinking propensity. I lead projects through delegation, on-going assistance, personal hard work, and follow up, and keep them moving forward while providing the structure needed for those involved to feel successful in their completion of tasks. I have represented schools, pastors, and now the president of a company where I have been reminded with a 10% raise each year that my “polished representation” is greatly appreciated.

I am thankful for my current job and yet interested in the possibility of moving back to Iowa where all of my family and some of my wife’s family resides. Given the the right career opportunity where we decide to make the move, I will be diligent to make sure you never become the first employer I’ve ever had to think they could find someone else better for my job. To keep it simple, I will do my part in making both the executives I represent and the company we all belong to extraordinarily successful!

I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further on these matters and so I hope to hear from you soon. I, of course, have a resume I can send when presented with a legitimate opportunity to consider. Thank you for your time and consideration of me and what I have to offer!
