I spent my career in the design and manufacturing of machine tools and machining processes.  My technical focus was on precision machine tools and manufacturing processes of metal parts.  In partnership with a few others, I acquired a small hydraulic manufacturer and developed it into a special machine tool company, then into a precision CNC grinder manufacturer, selling machines around the globe.  I also cofounded a contract machining company which grew to 300 associates focused on lean manufacturing of precision metal parts for large OEMs and sold this company to the associates as an ESOP.

My business focus was on providing leadership, technical expertise, financial management, and sales and marketing.  I received my professional engineering license in Pennsylvania.   I have been a student of management methods, B2B marketing, corporate governance, and strategy.  I have been serving as a coach and counsel to CEO’s and new managers of small to mid-sized companies in the role Board member and advisor to several firms for the past several years.
