Re: Senior Project Manager opening
Dear Ms. Sullivan,
I understand from Christine Fredrickson that your department at ABC Bank is looking for a senior project manager to manage transition projects arising from the recent takeover of Eastern Bank. I am an experienced project manager and would like to be considered for this opportunity.
I am a certified PMP with over 12 years of project management experience using PMBOK / SDLC / Six Sigma. I have been a project manager for financial institutions' merger-related projects, very similar to your current needs. My specialty is IT project management, and I know what it takes to manage multiple projects with competing priorities and still deliver on time, on budget results.
For example, recently I was project manager for a transition project to integrate two data warehouse systems, one from the legacy bank, and one from the acquired institution. The project involved gathering extensive business requirements, overseeing database performance testing and vendor selection, and an overall effort to merge the databases and affected applications. The project was implemented on time and on budget.
As a project manager, I take pride in being a results-oriented leader, with excellent organization skills and the ability to hit the ground running in new environments. I am an enthusiastic, positive, up-beat individual, and bring that can-do attitude to my projects.
I have enclosed my resume with more details on my project manager background. I look forward to having the opportunity to learn more from you about a possible project management role at ABC Bank.
