I help companies grow through new products, services, customers and markets through a unique combination of hard and soft skills. As a consultant, I enable companies to improve their business strategies, marketing and sales performance, and competitive edge. And as an engineer and designer, I help clients improve their project and product development success rates. For over 30 years I have served a wide range of companies, from small start-ups to Fortune 500s across dozens of industries.

My main professional focus is ensuring my clients transform their growth ideas into revenue and profit. I build teams, optimize processes, improve decision making, and streamline communication.

SCMEP maintains a commitment of doing the right thing for the client while taking a holistic approach when it comes to making recommendations. We work hard to ensure our solutions solve core issues. This is one of SCMEP’s unique advantages.
