Highly Experienced in Running a business and working with entrepreneurs to start and grow businesses which add to my mentoring skill. My experience includes 40 years of combining Mechanical Engineering skills with an MBA education to grow companies, manage project launches and controlling project finances to produce on time, on budget and high quality results. The scope of my background included projects in the Automotive Industry, Aerospace Industry, Electronics Industry, Plastics and Metal working Industries. All aspects of these projects were handled from design and build, awarding project contracts, installing projects, start up and hand off.  In addition to these skills my career encompassed a broad range of duties from raising funds to finance projects, turning around struggling companies, selling companies and starting companies. Working as a volunteer allows the entrepreneur the opportunity to draw on my experience to increase their chance of success.
