Dear Ms. Walters:
As the senior administrative executive for Cord & Decker, Inc., perhaps you are in need of a talented purchasing Manager who can almost certainly make immediate contributions to the bottom line of your company.
A Senior Purchasing Agent for a Fortune 200, $2.8 billion consumer products company, I have enjoyed a reputation as a "tough but fair negotiator", who has made significant cost savings contributions to my employer. These have included:
-consolidated corporate-wide packaging supplies purchases with resultant annual savings of $35 million
-contributed $12 million annual savings through conversion from oil to biomass fuels with long-term purchase contract
-saved $8 million annually in inventory costs through installation of computerized raw materials tracking and forecasting system
-successfully negotiated five-year knock-down carton contract with major supplier worth $5.5 million savings annually
Educational credentials include a B.S. in Packaging from Michigan State University and an M.B.A. in Finance from Penn State University. I have more than 15 years purchasing experience with a major international corporation, and have been professionally active in my field.
Compensation requirements are in the low $80k range, and I am open to relocation anywhere in the United States.
Should you feel my background qualifies me for a current corporate management assignment at Cord & Decker,Inc., I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. please contact me at my home in the evening.
I appreciate your consideration.
David C. Jordan
