My expertise lies in leading corporate development efforts, building highly functional and successful teams, operational strategies, and improvement initiatives. Through my experience, I have become adept in delivering innovative solutions to elevate organizational performance, including global training programs, new business development, and partnership establishment.

In the wake of the most significant industry collapse in recent times, promoted and tasked by the CEO and COO to restructure the Business Unit and address inefficiencies to maintain profitability. Led due diligence the first 60 days and crafted a strategy. The following 2 months, led a RIF, redefined and consolidated roles and responsibilities, and communicated rollout process, vision, goals, and objectives while defending market share and a new pricing. The restructuring reduced total operating costs by 41%, and the Business Unit outperformed the 2016 budget with 25% greater revenue and 33% greater EBITDA, exceeding leadership expectations by 9%.See Details
Regional General Manager
Six months after releasing a new product not one sale was made. Spearheaded efforts to transform sales strategy to directly communicate value proposition and appointed individual leads for in-depth product training to subsequently train other Field Technicians. Secured the first sale within 14 days, and 25% product adoption within the first month. Regionally, the product generated $2.5M in the first year, and this sales strategy was adopted by all BUs in the US.See Details
For 2 decades, a lack of established Best Practices/SOPs and siloed communication resulted in operational disarray and high attrition. Defined scope, roles and responsibilities, and created/facilitated Best Practice meetings. Navigated change resistance to establish timelines, expectations, stakeholder communication methodology, and metrics. These benchmarks improved product/service rollout, reduced costs by $3.4M YoY, improved retention 45%, asset tracking 30%, and were adopted globally, resulting in promotion to General Manager.See Details
