In January of 2008 I reported to Fajardo, Puerto Rico and the El Conquistador Resort.  A room renovation and additions of a new ballroom/meeting rooms complex and water-front water recreation park were underway.  My assignment was to relieve the current project manager, assume control of the work and make sure the projects were completed in a timely fashion.  In addition I was to make an assessment of all costs to complete the project and reconcile costs to date and projected costs to complete against the project budget.  I managed all invoices and pay applications and managed payables against available cash flow through completion.
