As a strategist for the last 30 plus years, I have been very successful throughout my career by having the ability to merge various relationships and provide clients with comprehensive and profitable solutions worldwide. Throughout my professional career, I have demonstrated the ability to establish new markets, resulting in profitable products sold throughout North America. I fully comprehend the sales cycle from start to finish, through cold calling and most importantly creating a long and lasting clientele built on time and trust. I have built a profitable customer base by developing lasting relationships with major corporations as a brand ambassador. I have signed on behalf of employers several multi-million dollar contracts and maintained profitable business ventures.

Greenkraft is a manufacturer of alternative fuel systems and cab forward trucks that run on clean, green, Compressed Natural Gas, Propane and Electric. GreenKraft’s commercial trucks, are powered by a General Motors 6.0L engine in weight classes ranging from 14,500 to 26,000 gross weight. Greenkraft sells these cab forward trucks within North America. As the Director of Sales and Marketing, I was responsible for managing all of the sales and marketing development for the first Compressed Natural Gas, Propane and Electric trucks sold in North America as a private label Greenkraft Original Equipment Manufacturer product. We imported these trucks directly from China, manufactured by (JAC), the largest cab forward trucks. Greenkraft needed to establish a complete sales and marketing program that would be used to introduce our branded trucks to be sold to dealers and fleet managers marketed within North America. I worked directly with the manufacturer (JAC), in creating our branded Greenkraft trucks. I assisted in creating our website and spec sheets for marketing the product for various trade shows, dealer sales materials and dealer trainings. I assisted establishing our pricing structures based on the bill of materials, promoting and establishing dealer sales channels in North America. I worked directly with fleet managers throughout California on bids and delivered our first CNG based trucks to the City of Santa Monica. I assisted in signing five dealers located in California, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas. I established a direct relationship with Ryder, as the first CNG powered truck for their rental and leasing division in North America. -My accomplishments generated a combined sales estimated at over 5 million dollars, 170 truck sales based on an average selling price of XXX In addition to trucks sales, I promoted our after market CNG fuel delivery kit based on General Motors 6.0L and Ford 6.8L engines, which allowed the truck to be converted from gas to CNG or Propane. This product created a secondary revenue stream for the company and these converted trucks generated an estimated revenue of 2.1 million dollars, selling 100 fuel systems based on an average selling price of $XXX
