The position requires communication directly with various levels of management, including senior management.  In order to perform effectively in this function, the candidate must have an analytical approach to problem solving to assist in resolving issues quickly and accurately.  The individual will need to work effectively in a team environment, adapt to a rapidly changing business environment, work on multiple tasks simultaneously and have strong organizational skills to prioritize work accordingly.  The candidate must also have a consultative approach to encourage early escalation and resolution of potential issues.
