RssExperienced Manager

Deon E. Pettiford 4037 Benicia Court Indianapolis, IN Marion, 46235 317-890-3094 317-287-9106 To Whom it may concern, I am interested in a management position with your company. I am an effective seasoned manager with over fifth teen years’ experience as a senior executive manager, and although I do not have the associate degree that most companies are looking for, I have strong technical skills and proficiency in word processing, databases, and spreadsheets. In addition, I have strong problem solving and people management skills. I am also very teachable and a fast learner with strong training skills. I am a proven leader who gets results through motivation and I am very strong in all aspects of operations. I believe in leading by example and holding everyone accountable including myself to company goals. I’d like the opportunity to elaborate more about my work experience and how my skill set could contribute to the successful day-to-day running of your company. I have a great work ethic, impeccable integrity, and a proven track record. I’d be happy to supply strong references at your request. I look forward to discussing the position with you.   Sincerely,   Deon E. Pettiford
