Cover Letter

Dear Sir or Madam,

This is Neil. I am now working in Lenovo as Senior Procurement & Operations Manager in Data Center group. I focus on providing e2e total product procurement and service solutions to customer like Microsoft, IBM, Tencent, Alibaba, etc. 

I have 20-year end to end supply chain management experience in a fast-pasted manufacturing environment in Thomson Multimedia, Flextronics Electronics, Eaton Electric, and Lenovo now. The scope of my position covers procurement as well as planning. For details, you can refer to my resume enclosed. 

For easy review, I would like to list some key values I can provide. 

  • 10-year+ solid contract manufacturer management experience. I had worked in world’s 2nd largest contract manufacturer for 4 years. Also, I have been outsourcing finished goods or assembly partially from contact manufacturer for more than 10 years. I am an expert on the cost structure and manufacturing process. Act as the primary liaison between OEM/ODM and the team in US, I monitor, manage, and drive them to assure goals / schedules are being met. I also represent the procurement organization in internal/ external program meetings. External stake holders: sustaining (strategic, tactical), new suppliers. Internal: development, quality, PM, finance, etc.
  • 10-year+ cross functional team coordination experience. I lead Procurement function for the project to ensure new product launch to meet go-to-market date timeline. Some of key activities are: Collaborate the global commodity teams, building block teams and Technology Roadmaps from Global Supply Chain to include the price/performance curves and transition points of commodities. Prepare Sourcing Plan, in Outsourced Development/Manufacturing Model. Work with the vendor to obtain an agreed upon Source Plan Approved Vendor List (AVL) in line with new technology blocks. Ensure Service, Support, and Quality requirements are included in RFQs and Contracts.
  • Certified supply chain / legal professional certificates. Besides 20-year on-hands working experience in 4 Fortune 500 companies, I am a supply chain professional certified with CSCP, CPIM, SCOR-P. It will add value if you want to establish a competitive end to end supply chain over competitors. I also hold Legal Professional Qualification Professional Certificate which is helpful to reduce risks to intellectual property related or contract issues when negotiating contacts with suppliers.
  • 20+ Successful Projects: Most of the projects on e2e supply chain design or optimization. It can be split into 4 categories: Avoid risks, Save time, Avoid costs, Improve process.
