How I can help you

I can help you with overall business management, industrial marketing, operations, and supply chain. I have extensive experience in industrial and specialty chemicals, plastics additives and mining industries.

As a senior business leader, I have mentored colleagues to be successful in general business, industrial sales and marketing, operations, supply chain, and sales, operations and inventory planning. I have extensive international experience including 7 years as an ex-pat leading a salt mining business in England, and profit & loss responsibility for a Maquiladora chemical business in Mexico.  

In the chemical and mining industries I worked for Olin Chemical, Great Lakes Chemical (now Lanxess) and Compass Minerals. I have also completed consulting assignments in supply chain and mining. 

Let's discuss how I might be able to help you.
