Get to Know Me
I am married with three college and high school age children. My middle daughter is special needs and as a result, I spend my time in clubs and gatherings involved with special needs children. My favorite hobby is tweaking my home theater for the absolute best picture and sound.
What’s the best trip you’ve ever taken and why?
Spent time in France (Paris and Nice) with my immediate family celebrating my 50th birthday. We had so much fun living together like we were teenagers again.
What’s your favorite book and why?
Lean Sigma Practitioners Guide. It is an excellent reference for both learning the tools of LSS and applying them to most business problems.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
There is only one business scorecard that matters: financial statements. If you can’t show how your effort will impact the financial statements, then you’re probably working on the wrong thing.
“When you do the right thing; Everything works out for the better. Centric reflects my core mantra of always looking out for clients best interests, even when it is not the most comfortable conversation to have. This belief coupled with the ability to bring my past global expertise home to Indiana-based clients provides a perfect environment for success.”
