I completed my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management, with concentration in Marketing and Human Resources, in 2003 at the University of Pittsburgh. I was actively recruited by GNC in February 2004. Demonstrating the ability to quickly assimilate new information and readily acclimating to fast paced demands and responsibilities, I was quickly promoted to Senior Store Manager due to a rapid grasp and development of managerial, organizational, and time management skills, thereby being charged with directing business operations of seven corporate stores.
Combining complete product knowledge, communication skills and effective sales administration developed through exposure and experience, helped accelerate my working together with Executive Management and Human Resources executives, and progressively culminated in lead SSM responsibilities and being promoted to the Regional Sales Director for the Greater Pittsburgh Area.
I believe the experienced gained from working for GNC has given me a sound understanding of the responsibilities expected of a professional in the business world and may provide great advantage in my next opportunity.
Responsible for multi-unit leadership, overseeing the operations of 25 stores and $9.5 million in annual sales. Established forecasts, objectives, managed budgets, and reported status of sales operations.
