RssVice President for Human Resources and Training, Restaurant and Retail Industries

Hello, I am actively searching for an executive career opportunity, where I can capitalize on my diverse background in Human Resources, Training and Operations. An opportunity where I can lead award-winning strategies and create employee-oriented high-performance cultures. Where I can emphasize diversity, goal attainment and superior workforce optimization in a rapid growth environment or transform a struggling organization. “Forrest, our VP of HR & Training, is a unique individual in the HR/Training field. Growing up in restaurant operations he understands operational priorities and relates extremely well to restaurant level operators. At the same time, he is able to provide a sophisticated array of HR support services at a corporate level. Forrest therefore is able to establish a personal connection equally well with restaurant operators, franchisees, senior managers and Board of Directors.” Paul Fisherkeller, Chairman & CEO of Taco John’s International. Over the past eighteen months I created opportunities to improve my knowledge and experience in E-learning and generalist activities, taking a “back to the basics” approach. During this time I remained focused on preparation to now actively seek opportunities as an executive, where I successfully spent over ten years helping organizations and franchisees increase profits and fill their talent pipeline. “Forrest, our VP of HR & Training, developed and implemented franchise development, training and communication programs. He coordinated franchise and corporate conferences and R&D development to implement product introductions. He is people, operations and profit minded.” Kevin Osborn, President for LaSalsa and CEO of Green Burrito. The value I would bring to the organization is not limited to the outlined attributes and accomplishments in my resume. I draw from experience in three fields of discipline developed in two industries, lead existing strategic initiatives and champion new ideas with a big-picture Multi-Brand mindset, as I weave myself into the fabric of the organization. “Forrest, our Director of HR and Training, inspires the respect and trust of others through his openness and integrity. He tolerates a great deal of pressure and quickly assumes a strong leadership role when action is needed.” Bill Cox, President of Black-eyed Pea Restaurants and Denny’s Franchisee. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to talking with you about any opportunities in the near future. Sincerely, Forrest King “Our training programs are appreciated and well-utilized by franchisees. Forrest is progressive in his thinking and makes sure that programs continually improve and have appropriate technological advances.” Barry Sims, President & CEO for Taco John’s International.
