I worked as a staff Industrial Engineer for several major corporations. I obtained my Professional Engineering license in IL & IA and also a real estate Broker license in IL. Then as a staff IE for an IE Consulting firm I was promoted to manager. I later started my own consulting firm specializing as a business broker and also IE consultant.
