Director, Systems Support, Inventory Management        1998 to April 2007
        My group consisted of Inventory Control Analysts, Business Project Analysts and a CPFR Program Manager. We worked along  with other Supply
Chain executives and managers to provide guidance and systems support for their procedures and computerized systems.
        To maintain consistency throughout in our procedures and routines we analyzed business and operating procedures to devise the most efficient
methods of providing systems support to users.
        The analysts group provided support and reporting to help other business groups understand their inventory related data and maximize their
potential in the decision making process.  We created procedures library including organizational change, communications, information flow, integrated
processes for inventory management, and maintenance of custom and off-the-shelf forecasting systems.
        I had oversight of the inventory management computerized systems and processes.  Because of my significant involvement in all inventory related
areas, I was always called upon as a consultant to other groups within the Business Operations/Merchandising/Inventory Management.
        When RadioShack required leadership in project management, I was always called upon to help with cross-functional teams because of my
experience with systems, processes, and ability to bring groups together to work as a cohesive unit.  Many of the new software implementations were
replacing custom systems I either personally authored or implemented. Some of the projects I was involved with:
o        Project Manager/Author - in-house custom unit sales forecasting system, custom financial forecasting system for the Merchandising group, custom
purchase order management system, and promotional management system.

assortment, merchandise pricing, trade promotion management, and life-cycle planning.
        Trained other merchandising buyers in unit sales and financial forecasting and merchandising methods and processes.  
        As I recognized the need for better processes and systems to support the buying team, I wrote, designed and implemented the first computerized
unit forecasting system and the first computerized financial forecasting system for Radio Shack Merchandising.
        To help the company work better together as a group, I initiated several suggestions and projects to bring the people and software solutions
together so they communicated with each other.  Because of my vision and planning abilities, I was recognized and promoted to Director of Systems
Support and held both the Senior Buyer and Director titles to allow me to stay engaged with the buying group while developing plans to increase
productivity and profitability.

Buyer        1988 to 1992
