Joe Krueger

About

Versatile, solutions-driven Business Driver and Change Agent with deep tech savvy, financial acumen and communication skills. Significant success leveraging strong operational, analytical and problem solving abilities to ensure profitable outcomes for different manufacturing entities.

Throughout my career in senior management, I have built and cultivated strategic alliances, integrated state-of-the-art enterprise strategies and consistently accelerated expansion in revenue levels and market presence.

I offer a collaborative approach that involves working closely with cross-functional teams and multiple departments to facilitate important deals, resolve process issues, identify new business opportunities and meet aggressive business goals.

As a self-starter with a strong desire to succeed in whatever I do, I have an inherent ability to identify and remove barriers to operational excellence. In addition to my deep abilities to develop and implement workable solutions that fuel the success of strategic business initiatives, I have a proven record of harnessing technology to meet changing business needs and industry requirements.

One of my most recent achievements was winning a prestigious, industry-recognized "Gold Medal" for developing an innovative new product for Pony Tools that added $1M in incremental revenue and increased bottom line impact by 160% within 2 years. Throughout my career, I have earned and retained a solid reputation for meeting the goals and objectives of any organization with which I am associated.
