I am an accomplished business leader with broad technical knowledge and strategic perspective. 25+ years of experience from different roles in complex engineering projects including project management, implementation, team building, strategy development, research, and support of mission critical operations. My experience spans a multitude of domains including: - Manufacturing business systems (i.e. manufacturing execution systems, manufacturing intelligence, quality management systems, etc.) and interoperability with both automation and enterprise systems. This is from a variety of industries, specifically Life Sciences. - All aspects of product and services strategy, management and sales using both traditional and new approaches including social media. - Industrial and academic research by way of a doctorate degree focused on adopting the characteristics of social systems in software architectures for manufacturing systems. I am also a transformational leader with strong interpersonal skills.
