About Me

Could you, or someone you know of, benefit from a strong senior project manager or an executive with extensive success at improving business performance? If so, I could help.

Utilizing my expertise in enhancing supply chains and operations, I have saved tens of millions of dollars and thousands of jobs for my clients, both as a senior manager and as a management consultant. These improvements involved both process re-engineering and organizational restructuring, and were made while maintaining (and often enhancing) service levels. I have also led several capital raising and acquisition efforts, both for my clients and in my own business endeavors. In addition to my client service activities, I have developed a strong brand presence through various marketing activities, several national speaking engagements, and a magazine interview.

After successfully completing several projects for Chaucer America, the downturn in upstream oil & gas resulted in a gap in my employment before becoming a Senior Project Manager under contract to SMEC North America. I recently completed designing and implementing the Supply Chain and Material Management Strategy for turnarounds and major projects for a NYSE listed, $15B independent refinery in West Texas and am now seeking a new opportunity.

If you know of someone with a need in these areas, I would do an excellent job. May we talk? Although I prefer a permanent position, I will consider contract engagements. Furthermore, I am available for both domestic and international assignments.
