30 Years of Leadership

in companies like Nike, the Marines, CorVel, and other dynamic groups.

Known for solving tough problems that produce big results.

Specialize in leadership and organizational transformation.

I understand people, teams, and organizations. I know how to read the flow of an organization and, like a good coach, I know how to insert the right change at the right time to address a root problem.


Sustained change happens when a leader understands that organizations are collections of real people, with real goals, real desires, and real ideas. I lead change by accessing the talent, passion, and innovation of the people inside the organization.

A major consulting company to the Navy and other DoD entities and suppliers needed a competitive edge.


A one-number prioritization model that increased supply chain throughput by 20% immediately.

Want to Know More?

The Avraham Y. Goldratt Institute had some great ideas. They needed someone to get those ideas into systematic, repeatable, and sustainable practice, and that meant translating their business ideas into dynamic software. I led the design, development, and deployment of a supply chain buffer management solution. This unique software leveraged a one-number prioritization algorithm we designed to set priorities, increase throughput in the supply chain and manufacturing processes, and adjust schedules for planned and unplanned variability. The result was an immediate 20% increase in throughput resulting in millions of dollars of additional revenue. We then used the same concept to establish a project portfolio synchronization module for project portfolio management to synchronize release schedules for projects based on a unique resource demands.
