Improving Profitability

I have a strong understanding of financial drivers and am determined to make the necessary improvements on the plant floor that improve the company's profitability. I saved the Rockford chewing gum plant from closure, saving jobs for over 850 employees and improving the operating cost structure to make Rockford a low cost supplier globally.
