Bio

During my career, I am fortunate to have been given the opportunity to lead the turnaround of six organizations and three customer accounts – all were in crisis when I inherited the reins. The outcome in each case was a success – success defined by winning industry awards and creating profitable businesses. The obvious question – how have I achieved such success? My answer – I employ the power behind the “5-why methodology” to uncover the root cause of the problem. I deeply focus on behaviors and actions, and I actively listen. Finally, through my behavioral observations, I identify and seek out those who are quiet, as my experience has taught me that they hold the solutions to many of the problems. This approach enables me to quickly assess an organization, enabling bold and decisive action that leads to immediate, short, and long-term consequential and measurable results. SELECT CAREER ACCOMPLISHMENTS: HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS: “Worst in Class” to “Best in Class” | Assumed leadership of engineering team post-merger and through a disciplined, pragmatic and methodical approach transformed team over three years. MARKET SHARE GROWTH: 12% price increase yields 90% market share | Developed, executed, and achieved profit improvement plan across the product line and increased global market share for a specific engine family. INNOVATION RECOGNITION: Five Automotive News PACE Awards | Led teams at two different companies in the development, launch, and commercial success of innovations leading to winning coveted honor.
