I have fairly broad experience in wide variety of businesses, operations and business development-improvements. My small business experience includes residential construction & repairs and owning & operating an auto repair shop. Following college graduation as an Engineer, I spent most of my career in the Refining and Marketing businesses working for Independent and Major Oil Companies. During my career, I developed the skills and reputation for thoroughly analyzing, troubleshooting and improving different businesses’ performances, including reliably delivering quality goods & services to different markets-customers, contracting, and increasing short- and longer term businesses-facilities’ operational & financial performances. I held a broad range of positions including Engineering, Maintenance, Operations, Commercial, and Business Development at most organizational levels; from Technical Groups Supervision, major Projects Management, and Department & Refining Facilities’ Management, up to Corporate VP of Regional Refining, Business Planning-Development and Commercial Risk Management.
Based on my experience I look forward to helping others develop and possibly improve their businesses for a fairly broad range of goods & services provided into different markets. I also can help Clients develop and improve their supply chains, and management of new-developing technologies.
