How I can help you

 I started my career as a computer programmer in a medium size privately held manufacturing company.  In less than five years I was the VP of Systems.  Two years later I was appointed Exec. VP of Administration.  With unique applications of technology we very profitably grew the company to over $350 million in revenue.  The owner past and I moved on.  Over the next few years with different partners, I managed 3 successful startup companies, and turned a plastic thermoforming company from $1M in loss to $1M of profit in less than 2 years.  The last 14 years of my career I was the President of a steel fabrication business in which we quadrupled profit and ultimately sold the business to Nucor Steel.  I have been a certified trainer of Steven Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People since 1987
