My Success Stories

Shutterstock 421566682 Strategic Business Development

As the Plant Manager at Burgess Norton Mfg. Inc. I led my team in the re-alignment of 80% of all equipment to improve throughput and implement lean principles. Here I was promoted from Manufacturing Manager to Plant Manager and had a pivotal role in creating the only domestic source for in plant part production of coated piston pins. In addition, I implemented development strategies for the staff and support roles to improve company talent and reduce headcount. Furthermore, I re-designed the quality support structure to implement customer focus and improve operational monitoring.

At Electro-Motive Diesels, as the Manufacturing Manager, I developed detailed BOM’s and precision costing information from SAP for the current Re-power Project, and designed specific reporting processes from the contractor to EMD to accurately keep track of profit and loss. I developed a key decision matrix for the choice of contractor based on specification breakdown and pricing, as well as secured on-time delivery and controlled incremental costing by teaching contractors to maintain a critical path within their facilities.
