I am a Senior Consultant for SA Partners based in the state of South Carolina.
Over the course of my 35-year career I have served in a multitude of senior leadership roles primarily within two companies Textron and Ingersoll Rand. I have never lost sight of my humble beginnings on the factory floor where I was immersed in the fundamentals of Continuous Improvement through formal team based Problem-Solving methodologies. I truly believe it is this foundation that has made me the Servant Leader I am today!
Much of my career has been spent within the Automotive Sector where I was fortunate to work extensively with Toyota as my customer. This relationship allowed me to obtain great insight, mentoring and coaching around the tools and principles within the Toyota Production System. I have always considered myself to be a student of Lean, continuing to learn to this day.
I have worked within the following business sectors; Tier 1 Automotive , Aerospace, Power Tools, Fluid Management and Fabrication Industries. I am a Mechanical Engineer as well as a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt, I have also completed formal training in Situational Leadership, Developing Leadership Excellence, Coaching for Superior Performance and Building High Performance Teams. In 2016, while working for Ingersoll Rand, I was recognized with the Chairman’s Award for my contribution to the development & deployment of a formal “Team Leader Development Program”.
