MANAGEMENT - BUILDING PRODUCTS My passion as a results and change accelerator is bringing out the best in organizations by creating strong teams with exacting focus on customers and results. My leadership prompts the best in people from the front line to the board room and parallels those abilities with marketplace challenges. I am a generalist with hands-on experience in Logistics, Operations, Customer Service, Accounting, Finance, Human Resources and Executive Leadership. When I enter an organization, sales grow, costs fall, profits increase, market position improves and the strategic and tactical direction of the company improves.
