    I am a seasoned executive operator, strategist and change agent specializing in turnarounds and operations and technology transformations. With an extensive background in M&A, Strategy, Automation and Digitization, and a flawless execution track record, I have crafted and executed the success stories for industry giants and fostered value creation on a global scale. 🌐 Global Expertise: I've led large, complex, and distressed IT and Operations organizations to lucrative zeniths. My strategic acumen has generated billions in enterprise value, serving prestigious firms like Blackstone, Madison Dearborn Partners, and ESL Investments. 💡 Strategic Impact: My forte lies in quickly but never recklessly improving quality and extracting productivity and cost savings through innovation and discipline. 💰Financial Acumen: No spend clarity or operating budgets? No problem! Cash flow problems? No problem! Employees don’t know how to build business cases and don’t understand one-time, run-rate, below-the-line? No problem! I am the CFO, Treasurer, and FP&A team’s dream come true. The customer is at the center of everything I do, but so is Finance. I am deeply experienced at dissecting financials, engineering solutions to achieve the investment thesis, and monitoring and reporting on outcomes. 📈 Proven Results: ◉ In one year as a Supply Chain executive, my strategies breathed new life into and generated $200M in enterprise value for a once storied brand that had been in continuous decline for decades. My strategies slashed inventories by 50%, reduced back office payroll by 48%, launched 60+ forward stocking and staging locations nationwide, rationalized nationwide distribution centers, mended relations with global suppliers and restructured sourcing agreements post-bankruptcy, reduced supply chain technology spend by 30%, and drastically improved working capital. ◉ As a Technology Infrastructure executive in the wake of a critical security breach, I steered fortification, modernization, and simplification of the environment while achieving 15% annual run rate savings. ◉ As an advisor and post-acquisition activation partner, I orchestrated mergers, integrations, carve-outs, and strategic operations/technology transformation supporting large-cap and upper middle-market private equity. Some accomplishment were: ◎ ◎ Led acquisition due-diligence across Finance, HR, Legal, Operations, Sourcing, and Technology ◎ ◎ Transformed customer facing operations; launched South American operations center to deliver 50% run rate cost reduction and 60% KPI improvement ◎ ◎ Restructured $5B carve out and merger for agility and sustainability in 12 mos; Compressed three subsidiaries, reduced payroll by 15% with 45 days of deal close ◎ ◎ Executed rooftop consolidation, reducing nationwide footprint by 26%, REL and related costs by $5M annually ◎ ◎ Structured and executed $250MM annual strategic sourcing partnership for various health care functions including Risk Coding, inbound and outbound contact centers, data analytics, engineering, resulting in 40% run rate savings and 10yr COLA freeze ◎ ◎ Divested non-core, underperforming subsidiaries ◎ ◎ Drove pre-close Sales & Go-To Market white room initiatives on $10B carveout merger: ⦿ ⦿ Client & pipeline overlap analysis and rationalization for tens of thousands of providers and virtually all payers nationwide ⦿ ⦿ Sales & Account Management org design and compensation calibration 🤖 Automation Visionary: I have delivered hundreds of millions of dollars of productivity via automation and digitization leveraging traditional application development, robotic process automation, and artificial intelligence solutions including classification, LLM, and other trained and untrained models. 🔨 Operational Excellence: My hands-on experience with complex mergers, integrations, and transformations has consistently delivered reduced run-rate costs, improved KPIs, and sustainable, agile, and scalable business models. 🏭 Industry Experience: I have broad industry experience including M&A acquisition due diligence, post-acquisition value creation, and operational roles across many industries including but not limited to: ◎ Consumer Appliances ◎ Consumer Finance ◎ Customer Experience Measurement ◎ eLearning ◎ Healthcare Software & Analytics ◎ Home Improvement and Repair ◎ Legal Services ◎ Payments ◎ Pharmaceuticals ◎ Retail & Online Retail ◎ Warranty & Protection Plans 🚀 Ready for Action: I am at your disposal to drive your company towards efficiency and market leadership.

    I am an exceptionally organized and knowledgeable logistics manager and motivated entrepreneur with hands-on experience with building from the ground up 3 successful asset-based transportation companies. In the last 17 years, I set up and supervised various freight dispatch offices, domestically and internationally. I was able to analyze and communicate various financial and traffic safety data to multiple parties, such as equipment owner-operators, commercial equipment financing companies, traffic safety regulators, commercial insurance underwriters, and 3rd party traffic safety consultants. In a dynamic industry such as transportation/logistics, I was able to successfully collaborate with numerous parties involved (government safety regulators, commercial insurance providers, safety managers, financing, invoice factoring, freight brokers, shippers/receivers, truck dispatchers and drivers, just to name a few). With these many layers and moving parts, I was able to exceptionally multi-task and develop advanced problem-solving techniques. I actively participated in numerous government disaster assistance programs (FEMA) providing transportation/logistics services under extreme weather conditions, while being compliant with mandatory safety rules and regulations. I was an early adopter of new technologies in transportation management systems and communications and I was fully compliant and up to date with new transportation, labor, and tax rules and regulations. Over the years, I successfully managed and trained more than 20 transportation managers, safety managers, terminal managers, truck dispatchers, various contractors, and hundreds of truck drivers (up to 25 at the same time). I also have experience in a nonprofit startup where I was collaborating with my wife, a scientist in the medical field, on her patent application and product development for oral medication delivery in children and individuals with special needs. I am fully proficient with Microsoft Office Suite (and similar programs) and computer system management. I am an American citizen living in Chicago for 17 years, open to in-person, remote, or hybrid work arrangements.
