personalities and varying interpersonal styles while being collaborative and considering all views on an issue.
My previous roles have made me comfortable making difficult decisions while remaining calm under pressure,
no matter how stressful and frenetic the circumstances.

effective, I developed the financial reporting software used at OWI (SAP Business Objects Planning and
Consolidations). My team and I created a module in the reporting software to assist our tax department in
preparing hundreds of federal and state tax returns. The tax module has saved OWI $2.5 million annually in
consulting work that was previously outsourced. Due to the innovative adoption of the software at OWI, I have
spoken at multiple trade shows to current and potential customers on behalf of SAP. Additionally, I had a key
role in the sale of our chemical plant in both preparing future projections and giving working capital
presentations to the final two companies looking to acquire the division.
