Cover Letter

To Whom it may concern:

I would like to take this time to express my interest in exploring new opportunities.  With my past experience, highlighted here and in my resume , I feel that I am well qualified to meet the needs of your business.

As you will see on my resume I currently work for NRG Alternatives as their Director of Technical Services. We are a LED Lighting and Solar Distributor. NRG Alternatives is a start-up and with start-ups comes a lot of risk and you must ware many hats.  My role is to ensure our products, people, and documentation is all up to standards.  During this role I am the lead on all technical aspects of our Lighting Group.  I have developed and presented (many times) a full days technical lighting course, all our quotes all run through me for approval and I co-wrote our proposal Excel spread sheet which calculates our clients ROI (Return on investment), quotes and provides them with a detailed description of our lighting proposal package.  It is my role to supply our client with 3D renderings and lighting calculations for any and all projects that require accurate lighting analysis.  I also develop our Sales and Marketing materials using software like Photoshop, Illustrator and PowerPoint.  I handle shipping and receiving as well as research and acquire all new products. I would consider myself as the jack of all trades with NRG.

Harvistor a Wind Turbine Company being a start-up company as well meant we were constantly presenting our ideas to potential investors, government officials, municipalities, land owners etc.  I used Autodesk Design Suite (Inventor), Photoshop, Illustrator, and PowerPoint as my main tools to develop 3D CAD models, working prototypes and presentation material.  I also worked with our suppliers and lead in the development and design of our first scale working prototype.

Before wind turbines I spent three years in the LED lighting industry as a Sales Manager, traveling North America making and delivering sales presentations and developing a network of relationship for my employers.

Previous to sales I worked for an Automotive Exterior Lighting Company (Magna – Autosystems) as an Optical/Mechanical Designer using Catia V5 and other Optical related software for the Advanced Engineering Group.  During my role in Advanced Engineering we developed, tested and re-tested many concepts and prototypes and during this process I am now named on six US patents.

I feel that my experience and skills line up with the requirements many different job postings.  I see a very easy transition into most companies.  I am a dedicated self learner and have a proven ability to change work fields, and fit into different environments and I see this as a definite asset to any company.  I pride myself as a jack of all trades and use my diversity to get the job done.  At the end of the day I am loving father and husband trying to make a living.  I am available to start exploring new opportunities immediately.

Understanding the diverse requirements of most companies, I welcome an opportunity to meet with you to expand on my experiences and skills.  To see some of my work you may also visit my website at: http://chadovision.com/portfolio/ to get a deeper insight of who I am.

I can be reached at 613-967-8538 or by email at chad@chadovision.com to arrange an interview.  Thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.   I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Chad Lambert
