  • Skilled in analyzing, organizing, and presenting data in a simple format
  • Strong problem solving and analytical skills with a data-driven mindset
  • Excellent business partnership skills
  •  Outstanding written and verbal communication skills
  • Prior experience with headcount and operating expense planning would be a plus
