“There is a reason the root word of Executive is execute. It is the most important trait for an executive to possess. My work embodies that belief. Throughout my career whether as a Technical Manager or as a CEO, I have conquered challenges set before me. I have taken the most difficult projects and strategies and turned them into major successes whether that be commercializing a product from R&D or knocking out the commanding competition and positioning my company as the major leader and driving force in the market. As President of a world-class manufacturer, I exceeded the expectations and demands of the shareholders every fiscal quarter while maintaining the respect and loyalty of the employees.”
