    CV
    Dear Hiring Manager:
     
    I am currently exploring new opportunities and would like to present my resume for your review. I believe I would bring immediate value to your team, as I offer more than 20 years of technical leadership success in customer support operations and engineering, with specific experience in satellite operations, product line engineering, and launch support. My expertise lies in engineering systems, allocating resources, and establishing policies and procedures, along with driving new business development efforts, from proposal development to negotiations. Using my diverse business and technology acumen, I have built a track record of meeting and exceeding mission timelines and goals, not to mention delivering high-level technical support for highly complex operations. I am confident my qualifications align with those you require from an accomplished candidate.
     
    Most recently, I served as Director of Customer Service Engineering at Orbital Science Corporation, where I led activities for all on-orbit geo satellite assets and customers, in addition to developing and implementing policies and strategies for geo customer operations. I also identified and addressed immediate real-time on-orbit anomalies. Prior to this, I performed in such roles as Principal Engineer, Specialty Manager, and Operations Manager. Select highlights from my career include having:
     
    * Delivered creative solutions to OSC fleet issues and reported the fleet status to senior management (Orbital Science Corporation).
    * Coordinated and facilitated 5 Annual Satellite Users Conferences for more than 100 customer attendees.
    * Supported quality assurance and ISO 9001-2000 by establishing and implementing related policies and procedures (Space Systems/LORAL).
    * Developed, designed, implemented, and tested application-specific software ground systems for satellite TC&R (Lockheed Martin Space Mission Systems).
    * Played a key role as Principal Engineer during the construction of the Satellite Operations Control Center (SOCC) in San Jose for Globalstar and a back-up SOCC in El Dorado Hills, California.
     
    This letter and my resume provide only a brief introduction to my diverse technical background. For a more detailed presentation of my credentials, I would appreciate a personal interview at your earliest convenience. Until then, I eagerly anticipate your positive response and thank you for your kind consideration.
