Thank you for viewing my profile.

After proudly serving my country as a U.S. Army Noncommissioned Officer in peacetime and combat operations, I merged into a successful business career where, from the C-Suite to the office and production floor, I have enjoyed employing Operational Excellence tooled approaches to weave Business Transformation and Systems Integration into the fabric of Fortune companies, within heavily regulated business models and in diverse public and private organizations.

Industries and functional business groups will vary but results remain the consistent outcome. Evolving organizations need agile and objective thought leaders who can seamlessly shift from the strategic 10,000 foot level to tactical details at the ground level. This is especially vital in changing times when leaders must continue to be effective as we see more hybrid WFH/OnSite models.
