EXPERIENCE

2008 FINFROCK INDUSTRIES – Apopka, Florida


to
Present Senior Project Manager – Worked for one of the largest designer, manufacturer
and constructors of commercial buildings, parking structures, student housing
projects, and mixed use retail developments in the state of Florida. Joined the
firm when backlog was enormous and profitability was declining. Completed
projects within budget and scheduled time. Managed developments using the
international and local building codes and supervised six associates.
Responsibilities included office and field project manager, scheduling, design
intent, permit documents, field supervision and inspections, on-site coordination
of architectural documents, monthly managerial meetings with owners and
subcontractors, and preparation of field reports/RFIs/monthly developmental
project report, from design stages through final close out. Completing projects
within budget and schedule time constraints led to the company’s increased
profitability by 35% and eliminated backlog. New standards created and
implemented within the department permitted time for the company to expand
into new areas of construction by focusing on unique ways to save time and
money in the production and construction of commercial buildings. Managed
developments of Hotels, Hospitals, Educational Facilities and Retail centers.

conducting field inspections and framing walks; on-site coordination of
architectural documents with subcontractors; managing five Associates and two
Job Captains; conducting monthly on-site managerial meetings with owners and
field project managers; creating field reports, RFIs, and monthly developmental
project reports. Using strong project management image/presence to heighten
team’s creativity, coupled with assuming responsibilities from the design stages
through close out, tripled company profits.

Project Managers and subcontractors; direct liaison between the corporate office
and Project Managers; and conducting monthly staff and on-site managerial

developments on the east coast through plan review, strategic planning, and
innovative scheduling in structural deficiencies, and over a 4-year period, added
approximately 45 million to the company’s bottom line.
