Professional Summary

Visionary, results-driven customer account manager with years of developing expertise and building relationships across many departments within our company. Looking back on my career, I can see where Quad and the great people I’ve been surrounded by took a kid with no purpose and developed a highly motivated, ambitious individual who thrives at problem solving, thinking outside the box, and easy adaptability to an ever changing industry landscape. My most important role in this company is the one that doesn’t check a box or is accounted for on paper. I believe that I’ve become a rare type of employee that can both ask hard questions and look for better ways while also being the voice of reason and rally the troops when we are asked to do things that we don’t fully understand or internally accept. My sincere hope is to enjoy a lifelong career as a member of the Quad family.
