Credit Officer

Nationwide manufacturer and distributor of milk products.

Reported to: Credit Manager. Despite no experience with industry-specific SAP software, and minimal training on arrival in office procedures and protocols, achieved good results in recovering outstanding debt, and controlling credit for over 500 accounts with terms varying from COD to 30 days.

  • Negotiated account settlements and periodic payment schedules with several long-term outstanding accounts, and effectively saved one major client from transitioning to a competitor. Largest account managed – $50,000.
  • Resolved issues surrounding the issuing of credits for the organization’s “free milk” incentive. Conceived as a reward for prompt payment, several account customers were disgruntled at not receiving credit reward due to their poor payment record.

Baker Communications  2007 to 2010

  • Immediate challenge was to restore cash flows in ailing IT business impacted negatively by large market competitors.

  • Administered financial books for 2 distinct companies (hardware installations/repair service and internet service provider). Processed bank reconciliations, entered receipts and data into the computerized system, and managed daily banking procedures.
  • Established a routine customer follow-up system to encourage regular on-time payments and assure continued cash flows. Successfully achieved increased payment frequency from 97% of accounts.
