Dear Hiring Manager,

As a Financial Executive, I provide strong financial leadership, including financial analysis and reporting, for public and privately-held companies in the manufacturing, logistics, and telecommunications industries. I have earned a reputation for excellence in enhancing processes and results related to aged receivables, reporting, compliance, banking relationships, credit and collections, and staff training.

I am looking for employment in your area because my wife has recently received a promotion that will require our move to Dallas. My associate Michael Adams referred me to you because he thought my skills would prove valuable to your organization. Examples of my work include:

  • Headed FP&A, credit, collections, billing, and contractor settlement departments for Company ABC, a $200M telecom company; managed annual budgets and provided leadership for financial/operations reports.
  • Directed 12 team members in managing month-end, quarter-end, and year-end closings for a $60M logistics company; ensured compliance with all regulatory standards within the US and internationally.
  • Managed internal audits to define and improve financial controls for a $150M manufacturing operation; enhanced processes and tools in order to decrease aged receivables and optimize cash flow.

Eager to take on my next professional challenge, I respectfully submit my resume for your review. I would also like to request a personal meeting to discuss your upcoming goals and how I can help you achieve them. I will make myself available at your convenience and look forward to your call. Thank you for your consideration.
