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.
