I am an experienced executive with over 35 years of experience in the high technology industry building high performance teams to provide innovative products and services. I spearheaded the development of the first Internet screenphone in the United States, the first single-chip solution for Dolby Digital sound, the first yellow page directory layout expert system, the first commercial computer workstation and the first digital jet engine fuel control. During my career, I have held positions as Founder, President, Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Vice President of Engineering, Vice President of Customer Service and Vice President of Manufacturing.
I was a founder of the Pittsburgh Technology Council, which is now the largest trade organization of its kind in the world, and the Association of Field Service Managers, which grew to over 5,000 members from 1,500 organizations worldwide. I have proven myself as a creative innovator, leader and team builder.
In addition to my technical and business credentials, I am a graduate of Coach University, the largest coach training organization in the world. At Coach University, I focused on learning the most effective techniques to hone the skills of small business owners, entrepreneurs, business executives, professionals, parents and young adults.
