We have a strong management team that can boast of over 30 years experience in technical and management expertise. Each member has a specific contribution. The president and CEO has spent 20 years working in the chemical industry, and is adept at expanding companies that are well-grounded, but lacking in funding. The vice president of Granite is a specialist in consulting for small business on strategic planning and growth programs. And the final member of the team contributes expertise in start-ups among the pharmaceutical industry. Together, this team has a proven background of expertise and is more than capable of transforming Granite into a leading specialty chemical manufacturer.
Note: Names and resume information have been removed from this sample plan to protect proprietary and confidential information.
Our present plan is to immediately bring two people into the manufacturing operation, followed by an additional two or three throughout the next year. We need to begin looking for a capable marketing professional who has a background in chemical sales. We would like to bring that person on board mid 2001. Followed by one or two sales representatives with both interpersonal and telephone marketing skills. We will also employ support personnel as required.
