Professional Experiences

Being successful in the construction industry today requires building collaborative teams of talented people so we can build America’s infrastructure. My construction experience combined with my work as a John Maxwell Team Executive Director, Leadership Coach, Speaker and Mentorship Member has allowed me to identify and develop ground up “people first” businesses.

I combine my sharing life experiences and my commitment to being a lifelong student to connect with people of all ages in our workforce. This allows me to mentor and lead people of all ages and all experiences in our industry.

A sampling and career progression:

Since 1989, I have had regular oversight responsibilities managing / leading employees, as well as, building effective teams. I have been responsible for recruiting, hiring, performance evaluations, skill development, retention, and dismissal.

At age 33, promoted to District Manager of a “ground up” remote profit and loss business unit in Omaha, Nebraska. Empowered to build an office and field employee workforce and customer base. Sales reached approximately 4.5 million over the course of just under five years.

I have been involved with remote office location business oversight since 1995. This included development / implementation of strategic business plans focused on People, Strategy, and Operations. Annual sales revenue of these individual businesses varied between $5 million and $20 million.

At age 38 in 2000, responsibilities were increased to oversee a new start-up District office in Madison, Wisconsin which expanded within two years to Regional Manager of three remote regional profit and loss centers. (Davenport, Iowa, Rockford, Illinois, and Des Moines, Iowa)

In 2005, became a principal / shareholder of a Wisconsin based $250 million annual sales a year company. As an Executive Vice President, I had profit and loss divisional responsibilities.

In 2008 was selected to represent our company on a “blended” Management Committee to implement a Joint Venture operation in Chicago.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

I’m big on giving back. Giving back to organizations and our communities is at the core what I believe makes American the amazing place it is. Here are a few of the organizations I support.

SUPPORTING THE MILITARY/SERVICE MEMBERS

Since a young child, I have been enamored our “services professions”.  Although I have never served our country in the military services, I possess a deep admiration and appreciated for those who protect our freedoms. I do my best to take time to say “thank you”, I don’t feel it is ever enough. Involvement in fundraising for our military services is a passion as well as a small way to say “thank you”.
 
 
 

 

SUPPORTING FIREFIGHTERS & BURN VICTIMS

I have spent over 35 years within the Fire Protection Industry protecting property and saving lives via the design and installation of automatic fire sprinkler systems. Unfortunately, far too many deaths or burn victims result from fires annually. This is my way of giving back to the industry. 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

SUPPORTING LITERACY PROGRAMS

Impacting in a positive way future generations through literacy programs is important to me. The rate of change in the world is only escalating. I credit my professional successes to being a continual student. Reading to learn and improve is a big part of being a successful student of life. If someone cannot read, they have limited opportunities and illiteracy is, unfortunately a problem still today. Future generations should have the opportunity to be continual learners as well in order to keep pace with ever changing times.
