I began my 33 year career with John Deere in the Information Technology department. I was a trouble-shooter and used technology to solve unique and difficult problems in the areas of distribution, manufacturing, and sales. After seven years, I moved to the Treasurer’s Office where I invested in equities and bonds for the multi-million dollar pension fund. From there, I became part of the Corporate Planning Team, assisting in Worldwide Strategic Planning.

The last twenty years of my career was at the John Deere Credit subsidiary. There I was Chief Credit Officer with responsibility for credit approvals, collections, and the training both analysts and collectors. I created specialized credit scores and understand how your credit score is developed and used. At various times I was responsible for strategic planning, business planning and internal auditing. I also led an initiative to improve operational performance in all departments of the Credit Company (similar to Baldrige or Six Sigma). In my final year with the credit subsidiary I returned to Information Technology as Chief Information Officer.

More recently, I started a one-person software business that helps resorts and hotels in Hawaii, California, and Nevada manage their maintenance activities. The business has had eight successful years of providing benefits for my clients while generating positive cash flows.
