Product Design Professional
- Location Chicago, United States
- Local time Unknown
- Experience Not specified
I have made a career of creating, Branding, and launching innovative products and have skills I believe are transferable to any industry in the product development arena. I am used to working with very complex problems and driving them to market, vetting them through a rigorous executive approval process and working cross functionally, cross culturally, and leveraging suppliers and consultants to broaden the over-all depth and capability of the team.
While my background is in product design, I have worked extensively with Marketing, Engineering, Finance, and HR and have a sound knowledge of business, profit/margins, timelines, budgets, and hiring. My passion is product development and Brand development and I believe a strong cross functional team can drive innovation and financial success for stakeholders. Consumers have many choices in any industry where companies participate: I believe products can be developed that are desirable, fun/easy to use/consume, are cost-effective and that can be packaged and presented in a way that will sustain loyal customers and draw in and win-over new customers. Products should also benefit the consumer by providing that desirable experience they are looking for in a manner that is responsible and appropriate in the marketplace.
I am a quick-study and an expert in Innovation and Design. I have a strong Business and Marketing background, can understand and translate trends and the white-space not yet tapped by competitors. I have built and developed teams, inspire teamwork and innovation in all the adjacent departments and constituents, believe in building strong relationships within and across teams and can evaluate performance and measure the success of individuals, teams and products. As an Innovator I am always looking for new product solutions and feel there is always an answer for the most complex problems. I do not accept defeat.
My passion for innovation and problem solving is contagious, my drive for results and integrity are foundational to who I am, and I have a proven track record of leadership in Innovation. I am confident in speaking, presenting, writing, and am an experienced listener. I do not always have to be the one with the answer or to be right all the time: I completely believe in the power of a team via collaboration and organizational health. I value always learning and in the continuous improvement of products, processes, systems, and personal abilities. I hate to be bored and am naturally curious and critical; not critical of people and personalities, but from a perspective that we can always do better. I push myself and my team to greater and greater levels of excellence, and want to be associated with organizations who are always striving for the next big thing. I embrace diversity in its many facets and love to see my team succeed.
I am excited about the possibility of facing new challenges and new experiences where I can leverage my history as an innovator and my passion for driving successful new products to market.
