I bring 30 years of field-proven professional experience, beginning with a highly successful career in outside sales after college, that led to a District Sales Manager position, then a Regional General Manager position for Flowserve Corporation, a Fortune 500 Company. To translate this experience to the small business and entrepreneurial world, the last few years I spent as the President of a privately owned Construction Equipment company.
The depth and breadth of consultative sales training I completed during the first phase of my career helped to develop communication skills that guided and enhanced my leadership roles. Additionally, the corporate experience required an extraordinary level of adaptation to change due to the volatile nature of large company growth. The ability to communicate effectively and adapt easily to a changing environment, is experience invaluable in the coaching and mentoring environment.
During 2013 I was introduced to an opportunity to use my experience of the prior 25+ years to serve as President of a regional equipment retailer in transition. Developing the mission, strategy, foundation, sales plan and succession was an exciting process. I was able to draw on many skills and tools from my past to re-structure the business and chart a course focused on growth and sustainability.
Being the leader of an entire company has provided insight and experience that I have found very rewarding and invaluable in the coaching of other small businesses to success.
Through my 25 years of effectively executing business plans with very large and very small companies I have gained a wide variety of experience that I can share in honing your mission. As you cast the vision, I am eager to help you find what God has planned for your business. We will make adjustments for the future and decisions will be sound in judgement, good for business and always rooted in faith.
My non-professional life has also been full of blessings. Being married for over 28 years has provided the reward of three children and a good loving wife who supports me spiritually. I have served in my church as ruling elder and love participating in corporate worship as I have a passion for the guitar and love playing.
