How I can help you
I can help businesses define and refine new ventures and opportunities, help businesses continually enhance operational performance, and provide guidance for career growth. A 37 year career dedicated to developing and capturing new businesses, supporting financial planning and enforcing operational metrics for continual improvement and organizational optimization can provide insights and lessons learned for your small business. When making Go/NoGo business decisions; understanding the customer, the market dynamics, investment requirements, and what may (or may not) be the companies advantage are crucial topics. Extensive experience with evaluating and successfully capturing new opportunities resulted in over $4.6B of sales and the creation of wholly new organizational units. I can help business improve program performance. In my the role as Senior Director of a Rockwell Collins business and site manager, I had responsibility for $150M of annual sales, representing dozens of individual service, development and delivery programs. Many of these were with international customers, and all of these had their own unique challenges, with specific plans put in place to address troubled performance and to monitor for continued successful performance. My career offered the ability to work as an engineer, and as a business leader with overall operational performance responsibilities. This mix between the discipline of technical processes with the softer skills of business management provides significant insight into organizational behavior, career choice and the lessons for improved communications and corporate diligence. I have significant experience with international customers, including opening and operating a new Rockwell Collins business as an ex-patriot. In addition, I have 20 Years of experience defining and meeting annual operating plans, and developing and presenting strategic financial plans.
