Logistics & Operations Excellence. Business Transformation.

Hoffman Estates, Illinois

LOGISTICS & OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE

I bring more than 20 years of successful experience establishing operational excellence for industry-leading companies, such as Now Health Group, U.S. Cellular, U.S. Robotics, Gillette, and Ice Mobility.

With unique expertise at the intersection of operations, DC transformation, and transportation, I enable companies to double and triple sales without adding headcount to get the job done. Over the last 10+ years, I met the demands of rapid business growth by establishing new DCs, implementing new technologies, and building high-performing teams.

I build world-class manufacturing facilities with well-aligned global supply chain and fulfillment strategies, business plans, core values, and financial objectives. Currently at the Now Health Group, I am building a state-of-the-art facility with the capacity and capability to support rapid growth from $300M to $850M in sales annually.

People are vital to the success of any operation. I leverage deep roots in servant leadership and change management to rally team members around driving change that produces positive results, while providing them with opportunities and career paths that transform their lives. Integral to Now Health’s nearly 200% growth was the team. I strengthened the bench of leaders required to effectively manage the increase in business.

Outside of work, I invest in my children by helping them develop, grow, and achieve their fullest potential. With both sons playing baseball and a daughter in competitive sports, I spend a lot of time in the stands and on the sidelines. My personal therapy is weightlifting. It gives me time to clear my head while caring for my health.

I demonstrate these skills on the job every day:
* Logistics Management
* Transportation Management
* Material & Inventory Management
* P&L management
* 3PL Management
* Process & Productivity Improvements
* Purchasing Negotiations
* Value Stream Mapping
* Financial Modeling
* RFP Negotiations & Agreements
* Budgeting
* Cost Management
* Vendor Relations & Management
