Top Secret Clearance from 1984-1999 retirementSUMMARY: I have been in military and civilian leadership positions for upwards of 30 years to include Special Agent in Charge of the largest geographical area for the Criminal Investigations Division/Command (CID) and General Manager (GM) of two different large retail operations. My experiences have forced me to identify and develop my own personal values through diversity and self assessment. I perceive them as integrity, commitment, loyalty, competence, courage and initiative. Some of the basic building blocks I possess which benefit an employer include refined personal communications skills, a high level of common sense, strong educational background, high energy level and authentic leadership style which exudes enthusiasm from subordinates. BREAKDOWN: As a Military Policeman I worked independently as a Patrolman, Desk Sergeant, SRT Team Leader, Patrol Supervisor, Squad Leader and Platoon Sergeant. I was exposed to high stress and emotionally charged situations which helped prepare me to be calm under pressure and firm when decisiveness is required. I aspired into leadership positions on an accelerated basis being promoted ahead of peers. I applied and was selected by the US Army Criminal Investigations Command (CID) to become a federally accredited CID Special Agent. I had a highly technical job investigating homicides, rapes, weapons/drug crimes and frauds. This prepared me for the analytical phase of my career path and required meticulous documentation. I worked in a number of undercover roles to include a joint task force in Central/South America, a team chief in both El Paso, and Europe and operative in Northern California for counter narcotics. I developed organizational skills and broadened my ability to address complex issues. Multitasking was a requirement and I became very good at managing personnel and resources.
I worked jointly with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), US Secret Service, and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) as well as numerous state, local and foreign investigative services. I also deployed in support of a joint readiness exercise with the Special Operations Command as the primary hostage negotiator in Belize. I was the lead supervisory agent in a joint investigation with ATF across the Midwest which resulted in the recovery of about 100 claymore mines and numerous automatic weapons and explosives which had been diverted from government channels.
The specific training classes and experiences associated with the occupation of Special Agent such as hostage negotiations, interview and interrogations and US Customs Profiling increased my proficiency in verbal and nonverbal communication. I also made public presentations to US Attorneys, high ranking civilian and military personnel and appearances in court enhancing my public speaking competencies. Once promoted to CID Warrant Officer I served in the capacity of Team Chief, Criminal Intelligence Coordinator, and ultimately Special Agent in Charge where I supervised all aspects of felony investigations, and interacted with all levels of military and civilian leadership in a highly charged political climate.
As a General Manager of a medium sized retail operation I became proficient in Profit and Loss (P&L) related activities as well as oversight of logistics, personnel and organizational issues. I further refined my abilities in the art of leadership and management. I led personnel by coaching, empowering and involving them in a shared vision as well as mentoring them to the next level of their upward progression. At this level of management it became imperative to differentiate leadership and management and I reacted accordingly. I was involved in all aspects of human resource issues and managed training programs.
I have a diverse background which has provided me with a plethora of skills and experiences. I have become a highly developed asset with the desire and drive to aspire into a level five leader. I am looking to advance into a position of greater responsibility with daily challenges and broad responsibilities. I am motivated to work hard and lead by example, determined to do the right thing and humble enough to self critique on a regular basis and adjust course on the fly. I take pride in my work and my organization and represent my organization in a professional manner. I have acquired the vision to see the big picture and be proactive to create and achieve visionary goals by thinking outside the box. I care for others and convey a level of excitement with my enthusiasm. I am at the pinnacle of my development and ready for the next step in my career path to fulfill high expectations of excellence.
My most recent positions are all in high level civilian management positions as well as my advanced education in Business Administration. I have refined my skills to organize, manage, lead and mentor. I have been involved in the executive management decisions which involve the corporate vision, implementation and execution of business plans, profit & loss statements, balance sheets, corporate projections and oversight of all facets of a multi-million dollar corporation. I have experienced direct interaction with complex automation, human resources, logistical, financial and personnel issues in depth. Infrastructure and management issues have become second nature and I became proficient in self critiquing and conducting after action reviews of significant programs. I have served in national and international affairs successfully and ascertained a full understanding of multi-cultural operations and the challenges associated with that arena.
