    • 1. I have significant enthusiasm for and knowledge of the architecture/design, real- estate, and construction business as well as vast project management experience within the AEC field. My willingness to tackle any challenge, hold project teams accountable, and lead successful design project/programs has made me a valuable asset to design teams through-out my career. ross sanford portfolio January 30, 2009 Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I managed the STARBUCKS various locations various construction, design, acquisition and DARDEN various concepts/locations real-estate development programs and projects for clients using in-house A/E teams that included civil engineers/planners, architects and structural/MEP engineers, and construction managers. I was directly responsible for the execution of all aspects of these projects, including project schedules, budgets, and objectives to create alignment between WD and the clients. I was responsible for the preparation, execution, and tracking of project proposals; management of projects and teams through survey, design, engineering, permitting, and construction phases; and the creation, evaluation, and monitoring of project budgets and client invoicing. I developed strategic client program plans and pursued additional business opportunities by managing and fostering relationships with national and regional contacts within clients such as Starbucks Coffee, Bob Evans/Mimi’s Café, and Darden Restaurants. This created significant revenue growth and improved client satisfaction. wd partners 2006-2009 Tuesday, February 17, 2009
