I'm an ops guy who started as a manufacturing technician -- transitioned to supply chain management, morphed into an international trade compliance expert -- and evolved into a dynamic leader managing the day-to-day operations of a rapidly moving manufacturing company.
I've worn many hats in my career -- buyer, negotiator, planner, recruiter, project manager, and strategist -- and speak fluent engineer, marketer, salesperson, trainer, coach, and difficult client.
Most organizations fail to understand people which often holds them from reaching their goals with growth and profitability. I believe understanding people's needs (not wants) is the path to success, profitability, and satisfaction.
My mission is simple: I want to help organizations elevate the way they solve problems and reach their goals.
3 facts you must know about me are:
1) I am not afraid to fail. Understanding what works means fewer missteps, and fewer missteps saves time, money, and energy.
2) I don't care who gets credit, I just want to reach the goal.
3) I'm right-handed; but if my left and right brain were hands, I'd be ambidextrous.
