Dear Sir,
Thank you for the opportunity to apply for a position within your company. Currently I have been employed by Greenline Yacht Interiors, a world class yacht & interiors manufacturer, based in Dubai. Due to Greenlines current position in the market I am seeking more suitable employment.

For the past ten years immediately prior to my employment with Greenline, I established and have built upon my own company, AT-PRO PTY LTD. The business is a well established Brisbane based interior fit out company that employs eleven staff and up to several hundred sub-contractors, which includes but is not limited to Joiners, cabinet makers, builders, glaziers, stone masons and yacht interior manufacturers. Another division of AT-PRO specialises in French polishing & 2 Pak coatings for the construction, interior fit out, kitchen and the boat industry. Some of our valued Clients include The Queensland art museum, Mustang boats (interiors), Beverly Bloxam (designer for Australian government), Hufcor wall panelling and Mayco (High rise kitchen fit outs)

My extensive employment history has involved me in all aspects of the Construction industry and Business operations. Listed below are key points of experience and abilities within my employment history.
Meet all pre- contract & post contract commercial obligations
Manage multiple projects
Develop project schedules
Observe and keep project and business financial accounts
Participate in & implementing contractual agreements
Execute internal and external sales and service requests
Meet sales goals & overall quality of service

Supervise and train staff, and administer methods to motivate staff.

Throughout my professional work life I have also maintained and continued my professional development. In the year 2000, I completed a Bachelors of Business Administration. I further have a trade background as a French polisher / spray painter and am proficient in 2pak applications, acid cure, epoxy, polyesters, nitrocellulose, stains & many other forms of decorative & protective coatings.

As a final note and one Im particularly proud of, I was privileged to have the opportunity to work with DuPont and Mr Leo Hyde (DuPonts Research & Development Manager) in developing a new and innovative decorative finish for cabinetry and the like; which is now patented under my own name. I am amidst conversation to further develop and market this new concept.

On a personal note, I am a very motivated person, who appreciates challenges and absorbs information. I firmly believe that I would be a valuable asset to your Company.

If you wish to meet I can be available at a time and place convenient to you.
Sincerely
James Meredith
