My Success Stories

Promoted to director

Promoted to Director in 2012 due to extraordinarily protecting KEY accounts from an unscrupulous competitor. This competitor was practicing illegal import practices pertaining to Chinese honey. They (and other competitors) were importing honey without paying tariffs. Shortly after promotion, two competitors were indicted. However, Barkman maintained customers due to my analytical strategies.
