1) Hired out of school as a logistics engineer/business analyst for a large North American transportation services company. 4 years' experience at the time of intended matriculation (Fall 2016). 2 promotions: one vertically within the engineering department, one diagonally into a marketing role.
Initial work consisted of developing decision support tools for the CMO and senior sales VPs. Designed and automated a comprehensive customer score card, used for quantifying and ranking customers on the dimensions of quality of revenue, growth potential, operating characteristics, etc.
Developed subject matter expertise on transportation sustainability topics. Acted as an internal and external consultant on green transportation practices. Liaison to the EPA, conducted capital investiture analysis on green technology, prepared and marketed carbon offset sales.
Recently I was asked by a C-level officer to consider a transition into the company's business management. Accepted the offer. Now directly responsible for the financial and operational performance of two critical Midwestern markets. No direct reports under me, but it is managerial in the sense of making decisions that affect equipment utilization, network design goals, customer relationship management, etc. Act as an integration point between pricing, sales, operations, and IT support for these markets. Youngest of my professional peers in a similar role and consistently performing in the top tier.
