Re: Financial Analyst, FP&A | Advertised on Monster
Dear Mr. Hartwell:
I am very interested in the financial analyst opportunity posted on Monster. As a financial analyst with a BS in finance and 12 years of diverse-industry experience, I excel at managing complex FP&A initiatives for publicly held companies and global, multimillion-dollar operations.
Valued as a decision-support partner by executives and boards of directors, I provide ad hoc analysis, data sourcing, research and financial modeling contributing to business transformations, including:
- Structuring acquisition deals of up to $200M.
- Providing financial and operational analysis contributing to approvals or rejection of business cases valued at up to $500M.
- Benchmarking analyses giving employers tools to achieve a competitive advantage.
- Fostering cross-departmental relationships and sharing trends with executive leaders to develop continuous-improvement solutions throughout the organization.
I also play a key role in refining models and reports that support forecast and budget processes. By “owning the data,” I am able to drive visibility into my employers’ revenue, expenses and functional operations and guide better decision-making.
If you are searching for a financial analyst armed with the vision and know-how to increase shareholder value, we should speak. You may contact me at (555) 555-5555 or email@example.com.
