I am an experienced supply chain consultant with a 20+ year history of working in the management consulting industry. Strong engineering professional skilled in Spend Analysis, Operations Management, Global Sourcing, Procurement, and Engineering. I am experienced in the following industries: Oil/Gas, Aerospace, Automotive, and Industrial Manufacturing
I am equally comfortable working with design engineers, manufacturing leaders and technical sourcing managers and work best when working between all three functions. My most successful projects have been cases where functions have become siloed and fail to take advantage of each others’ strengths. Many of my clients have been mid-market manufacturers who have grown beyond the capabilities of their procurement staffs. My primary areas of interest include procurement change management, engineered product sourcing, cost engineering, and low cost country sourcing and supply transition.
