I am Engineering Manager and Project Manager with a unique blend of business, leadership and technical experience. My background includes automation / control system and software development, as well as global project management through collaboration with cross-functional teams. With extensive industry experience, I have managed break-through development projects for strategic advancement resulting in high-quality and sustained results. Superb communication skills allow me to build key relationships with vendors, customer decision makers, and technical personnel. I have also been the author of various articles, presentations, and training / marketing materials for multiple audience levels that successfully introduced new technologies and launched products.  In addition, I have an MBA, PE license, and training in PMI project management.

Currently, I am managing a team of professionals as a contractor in commercial engineering for a large, well-known control and automation hardware and software company.  I lead the group in providing costing analysis, technical support and sales assistance for automation / control equipment to distributors and customers worldwide. In addition, I have been closely involved with the group's conversion to the SAP business software.

When the contract is complete I will be looking for interesting opportunities in engineering team leadership or project management in the Milwaukee, WI area.
