I have over 20 years of materials and procurement experience in a manufacturing environment, including processing, outsourced manufacturing, raw materials, MRO, office, and technology. Additionally, negotiated LTAs (Long Term Agreements), including the development of controlling documents; collaborated with internal and external partners; acted as Procurement/engineering liaison, managing purchasing, and researched new suppliers, processes, and approaches to manufacturing.

I like being a member of a team where I can have a positive effect upon a growing and maturing organization that is in it for the long haul.
