Personal Branding Plan
After retiring from the Navy as a navigator of twenty three years, I worked from the ground up within an automotive transport company. I began in dispatch to learn the ropes, moved into order entry to learn the necessity of having correct and complete information the first time. I was transferred to sales to learn how to speak with both existing as well as new clients to gain orders and to maintain a good customer relationship. I was placed into accounting to learn business financing and then placed as the assistant sales manager to create a training plan that would better assist the sales team of utilizing best practices. Once I had proved myself in the sales department, I then took over as the manager for the dispatch department for a good while since that department was really the nerve center of the company. When the dispatch team and I completed the two best years the company had on record, I was moved into the position of operations manager. Taking on the position of the operations manager was very enlightening as I was able to bring my knowledge of the different departments to make the company begin to work as a cohesive unit rather than separate entities. As the company began to work together as a unit, it was clear to the owner that I had the abilities to maintain the business. I was further promoted to the director of operations and the owner was able to become an absentee owner and leave the business operations to my handling.
I believe that I could excel within United Road, which is a finished vehicle logistics provider. I believe that since they have acquired Allied Trucking and have become the largest vehicle shipping company in the nation that my knowledge and experience would be very beneficial within their organization to help them continue to grow and gain more business.
Moore Transport is a finished vehicle logistics provider out of the Dallas / Ft. Worth area that transports finished vehicles across the nation. I know that I have the ability to begin a used vehicle segment within their business model to not only bring in new business but, to also alleviate a good portion of their dead head (empty) mileage.
Central Dispatch is an online load board for vehicle dealers, brokers and trucking companies to either post freight in need of transportation or to contract freight to ship. With my experience in the vehicle logistics industry, I could bring new ideas into the business model of Central Dispatch that would enable them to branch out into a wider spectrum of business.
Finished Vehicle Logistics
Finished Vehicle Logistics is a group that brings all of the finished vehicle manufacturers together to conduct meetings that enable the manufacturers work out issues with service providers such as the trucking and rail industries and vendors such as the parts suppliers. With the company\'s overall weight within the industry and my experience in logistics for both the finished vehicle and the used vehicle segments, I could be able to work towards a unified vehicle condition report and tracking system that would be able to work for all vehicle transportation.
There are several ways to initiate contact with companies and those who influence the hiring such as LinkedIn, Facebook or the company website. Engaging them can be as simple as sending them an invitation to connect then begin to build a rapport.

A Disturbing Movement of Anti-Intellectualism in America It?s more valuable to see with the eye in one?s heart, rather than see with the eye in one?s head. The epic crusade of science and technology versus theology, both religions of sorts dating back in time more years than any of us can begin to comprehend. Maybe that is why, as a whole, we have such a difficult time discerning between the two, or rather, why we fail to see clearly the true meaning
The Bay Of Pigs InvasionThe Bay of Pigs Invasion The story of the failed invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs is one of mismanagement, overconfidence, and lack of security.

The Causes Of World War I The Causes of World War I The First World War had many causes; the historians probably have not yet discovered and discussed all of them so there might be more causes than what we know now.

The Archduke was chose

Slavery Reparations Are Wrong Slavery Reparations Are Wrong Ladies and gentlemen; I don't believe that anyone in this chamber would move to disagree with the idea that slavery was an atrocity, committed from the depths of the darkest parts of the human sole. Africans were seized from their native land, and sold into lives of servitude into a foreign land. Indeed, it was a tragedy on such a scale that cannot be measured nor quantified. And it is this very notion of unquantifiable tragedy which speaks to the matter of reparat

Warren Electric Warren Electric The electronic distribution industry is one of the fastest growing and changing industries right now. One of the problems right now is that the industry is going into a direction that it has never been before. Massive acquisitions and mergers are causing a slight problem right now in this industry.

Disaster PreparednessEmergency Preparedness: Planning Could Save More than Lives Disasters can occur anywhere at any time, and can leave a huge impact on a community or in some cases an entire country. We do not seek these disasters; they find us. We cannot run. We cannot hide. However, we can prepare ourselves ahead of time with the appropriate resources, and knowledge before disaster strikes. Planning can go a long way in the event of a disaster, and can help save more than people?s lives, which has brought attent
