Department Manager
Company Name: Norcostco, Inc.
Dates Employed: Feb 2018 Present Employment Duration: 5 mos
Location: Dallas, TX

NorcostcoTX is a comprehensive supplier of entertainment technology for the entire Southwest United States, including New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana as well as secondary support for our nation-wide network of stores. We represent a vast number of amazing manufacturers from the big industry workhorses down to the small, niche developers of those unique, one-of-a-kind solutions that can make or break a project. I strive to provide the very best experience for clients. Whether it be advisement on one gallon of theatrical stage paint or bidding on a complete lighting renovation, package for your theatre, I will take the time to listen to your vision and do my very best to help realize your dream.
I oversee a team that values efficiency, effective communication, and a creative approach to solving technical problems. Theatre seasons come and go, ebb and flow, and thus, so too must theatrical sales. I work with upper management and corporate guidlines to ensure spending and inventory levels are balanced seasonally, cutting cost where excess can be found and improving accuracy in forecasting sales trends.
As shipping manager, I strive for 100% accuracy to reduce wasteful spending and frustrated customers. Shipping can make or break an otherwise flawless shopping experience. Knowledge of UPS, FedEx, and Freight protocols are used daily to ensure proper outgoing and incoming packages are handled appropriately and distributed to their respective recipients. Accurate record keeping is required as a safeguard against shipping discrepencies that can happen due to many different circumstances. Understanding those circumstances and being able to work with the customers to ensure their happiness is paramount to Norcostco's mission. Communication between manufacturers, delivery services, and customers is a regular cycle that has kept this dynamic environment working smoothly for decades.
