Highlight Write Up:
Win every day!

For over two decades I have produced world class results by instilling high standards of professionalism, articulating a clear picture of what success looks like, and teaching my teams to achieve it. Success doesn’t come overnight, it requires a constant winning attitude; long term success is achieved only by teams who win every day.

Whether it’s operations, finance or supply chain, I bring advanced analytical thinking, strategic vision and creative problem solving to the table, and I bring out those same skills among the teams I lead. I have directly led as many as 400, and influenced as many as 40,000, and creating cross-functional synergies has become a specialty of mine.

I have been recognized for building and maintaining key strategic relationships with government, military and business leaders worldwide, and for bringing a high level of energy, focus, teamwork and professionalism to the teams I lead. I can do the same for you – I can teach you to win every day!
