position:  program manager (chief), eastern currency facility, office of security printing



i am highly interested in being considered for the program manager (chief), eastern currency facility, office of security printing, position available.  with over 30 years background in the security printing industry, i believe i can make a positive contribution in this assignment.  to acquaint you with my qualifications, i am submitting my resume.  in advance, i thank you for your time and consideration.


as demonstrated in the accompanying document, i have served in numerous plant management and supervisory roles, including print manager, plant manager, plant engineer, maintenance engineer, shift lead engineer and press supervisor/operator, to name a few.   these assignments required in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of printing equipment, all ancillary support equipment and other necessary products and equipment. 


in my current management position as security print manager / plant maintenance engineer for the largest international commercial security printing company, i am charged with comprehensive oversight of plant operations, from managing daily production to serving as point-of-contact for osha representatives, local and state agencies and all insurance companies.  i have played a major role in the growth of this facility, which is now the only de la rue plant to be successful in the u.s.  we produce such printed security products as american express travelers cheques, stock/bond certificates, drivers licenses, bank checks, among other such products.  our plant regularly achieves mandated profit margins of 55%-65%.


i have spearheaded the design of plants and specialized equipment.  for my current employer, i was tasked with addressing on-going quality and accountability issues in order to increase profit margins and production efficiencies for the american express traveler cheques work stream.   starting with a budget of $7mm, i developed an entire printing system that solved the various problems, completing the assignment on time and under budget, with a final cost of slightly more than $5mm.  the newly-designed plant in the u.s., with its increased efficiencies, allowed the company to close an inefficient, costly sister plant in the u.k, saving $1mm+ in poor production quality penalties as well as the payroll/benefits expenditures for 3,000 personnel.


as an employee, you will find me to be enthusiastic and disciplined, with proven abilities in management, problem solving and directing staffs, as well as a commitment to supporting you in achieving your objectives through superior performance.  i welcome the opportunity to meet with you at your earliest convenience, and look forward to interviewing with you in the near future.
