PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Victoria Supply, Inc/Topbulb.com is an 80-year-old, international lighting distributor located in Northwest Indiana that sells
specialty light bulbs to schools, businesses, hospitals, and consumers. Over the past 12 years, I have experienced the highs
and lows of a full business cycle at Victoria Supply Inc. During the economic boom, I grew revenues by over 40 percent by
introducing new product lines and expanding the companys online presence. As the economy entered the recession, I
implemented overhead reduction initiatives and added new sales channels that grew net income by over 200 percent. I also
gained valuable experience as part of the management team that purchased the company from venture capitalists, and then a
few years later sold the company to its current owners.
