Dear Nicole,

I sent you a note on LinkedIn on Apr 28 but I don’t know if you received it. I am just following up today because I have monitoring my emails hoping to hear from you. That how excited I am by this opportunity and your company particularly. I can relate personally to the company’s mission coming from one of the poorest country in the world, clean water is scarce and remains an issue today.

I have applied to the VPF position. This role is the opportunity I’ve been looking for. I am highly motivated and excited because I truly believe my background matches the job requirement greatly.

I am currently a Senior Global Controller/Assistant VPF at Capgemini an IT and engineering consulting firm. They acquired Altran in 2018 and we just completed our integration on October 2022. While Capgemini is a great company to be part of it is not however the right fit for me.

While the details of my experience are outlined on my resume, I’d like to convey here some of my core competencies:

>Emotional Intelligence: Establishing and sustaining trusting relationships by accurately perceiving and interpreting people’s emotions and behavior in the context of the company’s environment and leveraging that insights to effectively manage one’s own responses and reactions.

> Driving Results: Establishing systems and processes and creating a work environment where people can realize their full potential, thus allowing the organization to meet current and future business challenges.

> Self-starter: Creating accounting and finance departments and Shared Services Centers from ground up and implementing ERP systems (e.g., Microsoft Dynamics Axapta, Deltek, SAP, Oracle, Sage 100, Quickbooks) to facilitate daily financial operation management, financial reporting and decision making.

> Leading Change: Identifying the gaps (e.g., organizational culture, processes and systems) and defining a strategy to improve the integration of newly acquired companies, merge legal entities or divest non-core businesses;

> Cultivating business partnerships: Initiating and maintaining strategic relationships with the company’s owners and stakeholders inside and outside the organization (e.g., cross-functional partners, payers, suppliers) to advance business goals.

> Risks Mitigations: Recommending and implementing policies and procedures to support business adventures in new markets I hope you find my candidacy for this VP role to be strong and worth pursuing and if you do; I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
