I possess world class experience in lean manufacturing implementations on three continents and in seven countries for multiple Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller firms.

■ Assuring the highest level of quality and on-time customer delivery

My stellar career is supported by a BS in Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering from Southern Illinois University and five and a half years with Shingi-jutsu Toyota System developers – Ordained Disciple of TPS philosophy and 6 Sigma Black Belt.
