WHO AM I?

I grew up on a farm where I learned the value of hard, honest work. I am a “get it done” type of guy that does whatever it takes to accomplish the goal. I love a good challenge and solving problems. I have structured and managed Supply Chains reaching into and across more than 60 countries. I am a global supply chain, distribution, operations, transportation, and fulfillment professional with 20 years of verifiable and successful experience. I am a results oriented manager that has the knowledge and experience to build strong teams and make an immediate contribution to any organization. And most importantly, I love what I do! EXPERIENCE
