20400 Ivybridge Ct.
Montgomery Village, MD. 20886


For over 10 years I have managed store planning, construction and merchandising for a variety of retail companies. In my capacity as construction manager I have led a team from vanilla box through grand opening for all types of construction including, landlord, GC build-outs, ground-up, existing and renovations.

Specifically, my strengths include:

Strong leadership skills that include hiring, training and managing employees.
Ability to direct and coordinate activities of project personnel to ensure project
progress is on schedule and within or under budget.
Effective communication with all project stakeholders from landlords to GCs to
corporate staff.
Ability to prioritize multiple projects of varying scope and budgets.

Because of the economic downtown my construction management position at Jos A. Bank was eliminated. Since that time, I have continued to keep abreast of developments in retail construction and in touch with my professional contacts.

I am currently working as a Personal Project Manager, as well as an Independent Merchandising Contractor, but I am anxious to return to the retail construction management field, and continue to look for a corporate environment where I can bring my experience and successful track record to virtually any construction and project management position.

Thank you,
Victor Barothy
