WORKS Motorsports

Sales Manager                                     

Purchasing Manager

2008 – 2011

Sonoma, California


WORKS Motorsports was the old factory race team for Mitsubishi Motors North America before Mitsubishi left motorsports. My job was to keep the company profitable which meant overseeing all departments from eCommerce to fabrication. Sponsorship contract management, photography and promotions (car meets, magazine shoots and track days) were my sole responsibility. Marketing and overall business strategies were closely aligned with my day to day duties and I made them work seamlessly together to achieve a very high goal.

·          Drastically reduced the inventory shrink on an inventory that was worth over $1 million dollars and had more than 14% shrink. This was turned into an inventory worth over $1.5 million dollars and .023% shrink.

·          As Sales Manager average daily sales ranged from $2000.00 to $4,000.00 and a steady pace of $60k to $100k per month, up 60% from the previous sales manager.

·          Negotiated exclusive parts deals with the following manufactures: Seibon Carbon, Ohlins USA, Endless USA, HotBits Canada, Whiteline (RedRanger) USA, C-West USA, BFGoodrich Tire, Team Dynamics USA, AST Suspension, Brian Crower (BC), Clutch Masters, Darton Sleeves, CP Piston, and APR Performance.

·          Worked with the world famous Martin Agency as well as Cutwater a well know advertising agency to create more than 10 commercials for BFGoodrich, Mitsubishi Motors North America and WORKS Motorsports.

·          Early in 2011 I assisted one of our pro drivers, Lars Wolfe, with several BF Goodrich Commercials that involved Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White, they are pretty hilarious

And shouldn't job searches go in "classifieds" instead of "general?" :poke:



Seriously, good luck on the job search, it's tough out there. :thumbup:
