XXX X XXXX XXXX, Salem, VA 24153
Professional Summary
   I would like the chance to re-enter the working world. Retirement is not all that great. I have a great number of skills that could and should be put back to use. My knowledge of the construction industry is quite extensive with pricing and project management being my forte. As a former business owner I am very aware of cost controls and how to implement them. I have excellent communication skills and am a team player.

Forty years of manufacturing and sales experience has afforded me the ability to understand the processes involved in completing projects on time and on budget. It has always been my responsibility to price and oversee the manufacturing of the projects that my company or my employers companies have been involved with. I have also been the front line contact with the clients or their representatives making sure that  the products and services contracted  met the delivery and quality expectations of the parties involved. I have dealt with projects regionally and nationally and I am confident in my ability to continue my skill sets.
