About

For more than 40 years, I have worked as a business executive and a consultant to other business executives and their teams. I serve as a confidential advisor and CEO coach to help build and sustain high performance.  I have been recognized as a master facilitator and seminar leader. My expertise includes business strategy design and execution, key executive selection, executive team and board of director effectiveness, strategic organizational change and transformation, and executive leadership development and succession planning.

My previous positions include President and CEO of HRMG, Inc.; Executive Consultant at Informix Software; President and CEO of Gynecare, Inc. (Public); President and CEO of the Benefits Systems Division of the Transamerica Life Companies; Corporate Vice President Human Resources and Director of Management Development with Transamerica Corporation; and Manager of Advanced Management Development Programs with SCM Corporation.

My work with executives and their teams has been extensively international. I have consulted with executives in more than 300 companies in 25 different industries around the World. I have served on the Board of Directors with 5 companies and have consulted with boards to improve their effectiveness. My clients have ranged in size from Silicon Valley start-ups to the top Fortune 100.

I am the author of “The Power of Executive Leadership,” “Leading Units and Teams for High Performance,” and “Making Mergers Work.” published by HRMG, Inc. I am also the coauthor of “Transformation To High Performance,” published by SRI International (Summer 1993); and “Orchestrating The Renewal: Creating and Maintaining a High Perfor- mance Board,” published in Directors and Boards (Spring 1994).

I am an avid sailor and can be found in my spare time either working on my 40 foot ketch, Shadowside, or sailing. In the summer of 2016, I sailed from San Francisco to Hawaii in the Pacific Cup Yacht Race and then on to Port Townsend, Washington.  In total, a voyage of 5000 nautical miles.

I am a graduate of The Ohio State University where I earned B.Sc., MBA and Ph.D. (Management and Organizational Behavior) degrees and played football for legendary coach Woody Hayes.
