How I can help you
I am a computer science engineer turned CEO, with a strong process orientation who is able to harness the energies of multiple stakeholders to deliver growth and profitability. Early in my career I developed skills at Honeywell that were honed during the business transformation at the Alliant-Techsystems spin-off. I went on to successfully apply those skills in leadership positions at high-growth and startup service-oriented businesses. My contribution to each company has been to apply both process and technology to create differentiated market positions.
My key strengths include a mastery of business fundamentals and getting divergent participants – engineers, marketers, salespeople, executives and shareholders – to unify behind a common vision. With an ear for the customer and an eye on the bottom line I use my leadership skills to gain commitment for delivering business results.
My leadership style is to foster collaboration in pursuit of common goals. Through trust, I got employees to step up to new challenges and perform at the edge of their capacity, strengths and talents. I create a culture that when failure happens, the greater community drives for shared success, even in the face of short-term set-backs. In the end my leadership inevitably led to engagement and retention of key talent.
