McNeill, James J - Resume Jan2017 - Business Development


To Whom It May Concern:

If you have a business objective that needs a goal oriented, hardworking individual who is fluent in Spanish and can deliver bottom-line results, I'd like to make a strong case for myself. My past achievements in Domestic and International Oil & Gas Sales Management have helped successfully meet the business objectives of several large oil & gas companies; with emphasis on effective client expectation management and selling myself as a reliable partner.

I have worked in the oil patch for the past 13 years, and through my experiences I have developed an extensive database of E&P company contacts both in the Houston/GOM region, as well as Latin America. I am contacting you because I believe my experience and skill set are right for this position.

Of particular interest to your organization:
• I have demonstrated my abilities through successfully managing oil & gas business development objectives, project management and controls, driving a strong brand, as well as marketing & social networking presences.
• I have consistently contributed my leadership skills in a corporate setting, while managing the creative process, motivating and empowering team members, fine-tuning sales & marketing plans, and juggling multiple “mini” projects.
• I am a proficient manager and project completion-minded leader certified in fields such as effective sales techniques, investment banking, money lending, and project planning & management, including budgeting and forecasting.
• Time and again, my initiatives have resulted in increased production and reduced costs while maintaining the structural integrity of the sales & marketing plan where I was at the helm.

I am particularly interested in assignments within the Houston Area/Gulf of Mexico Region or International Positions with an annual base salary range of $80K-$100K, in the following categories: Domestic or International Business Development of an Oil & Gas product or service where experience in dealing with large companies is a plus; and Sales or Account Management, entailing effective networking, technical sales ability, sales forecasting, and successful completion of company objectives, including sales plans.

I'd like to meet with you to discuss adding value to one of your current or upcoming business objectives. Should you wish to contact me, I can best be reached at any time by email at
