I am interested in working for a progressive company that appreciates and compensates experienced and dedicated employees. I am not looking for just another employer. I would be especially interested in working for a company that would consider my many years of experience in this field as a basis for a management and/or apprenticeship training position either now or in the near future. I would be willing to relocate. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
