Dear Mr. Anthony Morrow:

I am applying for the Financial Analyst position based in San Francisco, CA. Currently I am a Financial Analyst for Textron and have been in this role for 3 years. In this role I support the finance and senior leadership team of a $1.2B commercial helicopter development program by providing heavy analytical support. Some examples of the financial analysis I provide include annual operating budgeting, monthly cash & profitability forecasts, inventory analysis and adhoc reporting.

I enjoy solving complex business issues, and in my current role developed a standardized cost forecasting model which helped our team reduce report preparation time by 80%. I was also able to reduce recurring component costs by 8% after analyzing existing supplier contracts and collaborating with the account team to implement new negotiation strategies.

My qualifications include:

Bachelors in Finance

3 years of experience in forecasting, budgeting, and monthly close activities

Experience with SAP

Proven track record of improving existing financial models and processes

I would welcome the opportunity to speak to you about how I would be a great addition to your team.

Best Regards,

Mark Bachman
