Cost Containment is a book that is full of examples and easily to implement solutions for department managers and business owners of almost any kind of company. This book was the result of the founder and CEO of True to Size Apparel, Inc. Gene Constant's work while serving Santa Barbara Savings and Loan in California.
Hired as the organization's Purchasing Manager, Gene was so successful in his negotiation of vendor service and supply contracts that he was promoted to General Services Manager. In that capacity he radically increased productivity and lowered costs, while at the same time improving the quality of service and staff morale. Gene was recognized by the CEO of the 45 branch financial institution and tasked with reviewing the entire Savings & Loan to find similar opportunities in the many departments. In what was named "Project Chris", Gene was able to identify and implement solutions that reduced costs to the savings and loan of more than $2 Million per year.
Gene was rewarded for his efforts with the S&L paying for his tuition for his MBA at California Lutheran University.
The purpose of giving away this book at True to Size Apparel is to share his experiences with potential and present customers so that they may benefit from his experience and thereby reduce their costs or increase their profitability in a constructive manner that boosts employee and customer spirit.
Gene hopes to earn your business long before you start paying for anything. This unusual action is not uncommon with Gene and True to Size Apparel, as Gene has spent a lifetime innovating and incorporating ideas that transcend typical environments, creating a hybrid organization that can overcome corporate incest and excel in the 21st century.
