Serving the following counties: Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Hampton, Jasper

I am an advocate for developing and optimizing manufacturing in South Carolina.

With 25+ years manufacturing experience serving over 1200 manufacturing organizations I have the opportunity to leverage my knowledge, skill set, and passion for manufacturing as a resource to manufacturing companies in the region. I believe in spending a balanced focus on both manufacturing excellence and team dynamics within an organization.  By inspiring a group of individuals within an organization around a compelling mission, organizations can expedite the planning and implementation process that will allow them to reach their goals and sustain performance over time.

Blending the extensive SCMEP tools and SMEs, with 15+ years in private consulting focused on complete and total business improvement, I am prepared to provide any support you need to ensure your organization’s success now and in the future.
