Having read your job description posted on LinkedIn.com, I am excited to be applying for this role as I believe that the combination of my previous career experience, industry education, and multiple relevant skills and abilities make me a perfect candidate for this job.
With demonstrated experience and comprehensive background in working as a Purchasing Manager for over two years, I am fully adept at performing any tasks associated with the role. At Benco Dental, Inc., I spent most of my work time coordinating multiple daily purchasing operations and managing and supervising the purchasing team which consisted of 3 other employees. Moreover, I researched and evaluated potential new suppliers, participated in the contract negotiations, and worked on the development and implementation of profit maximization processes. To state some of the results of my team, we achieved to increase profit margins by 17% and reduce expenses by 15% within just one year. This valuable experience has helped me to further improve my leadership skills and provided me with a great opportunity to acquire excellent critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.
Additionally, I worked as a Purchasing Agent at Taylor Morrison, Inc. for more than three years. There, I not only won the Employee of the Month Award once for constantly executing exceptional work but I was also mainly responsible for the development of all purchase requisitions. Besides that, I:
- Built and maintained professional relationships with suppliers, assisted the Purchasing manager with inventory management.
- Conducted and analyzed monthly reports, administered contracts.
I am a Certified Purchasing Manager (C.P.M.) offering an Economics & Finance degree from the Erasmus University Rotterdam where I also acted as a First-Year Representative for one year. Last but not least, I am a native German speaker with a proficiency in English and Spanish, great communication skills, and the important ability to work and perform well under pressure.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
