I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to lead and run manufacturing businesses since I was in my 30's. I spent my first 25 years in business as a tier one supplier to the global automotive OEMs. I've always said time in the automotive markets is like dog years where you get 7 years of experience every twelve months.
I love product development. Over my career my teams have successfully brought hundreds of complex high volume mechatronic products to market and I have negotiated and led numerous acquisition and divestitures. While I have never stopped learning, at this point in my career I truly feel I have some wisdom to share.
This leads to my current passion, building strongly independent data-driven teams and organizations that excel in all aspects of their business, supported by disciplined business processes, strategy, planning and execution. In business, there is nothing more fun than growth and at TRG our growth is profitable, continuous and sustainable and comes from a balanced blend of organic and acquisitive initiatives.
