After working with a large multinational firm, I ventured out on my own. I launched a business, operating within the Construction Industry, which offered Custom Electronic Design and Installation services. Over the next two decades, both with and without business partners, I grew the firm, winning Industry recognition & awards. In addition to teaching within my Industry, I filled leadership roles, sitting on the Board of Directors for over six years and accepting a role on the Executive Team. I was awarded an Industry Fellowship.
The depth of experience over several decades included creating a market in a sunrise Industry, building teams, managing growth, working through partnership disruptions, as well as creating new divisions and businesses to better serve the market. Internally, I drove the creation of automated business tools for better focus, ensuring that all critical elements were tracked and monitored. This included: leads generation, proposal creation, job costing, purchasing, inventory management and various business metrics.
After selling my businesses I researched and built a labour-sharing software App (both Android and Apple) for skilled construction trades. This software was launched, however it did not survive the pandemic, for various reasons including limited cash reserves and partnership challenges.
It is through these years of diverse experiences, both failures and successes that I bring a valuable perspective. I have the energy and experience to help work through roadblocks, refresh thinking, establish accountability and drive ideas forward.
