I am an independent management consultant. My goal is to help organizations (public or private) achieve success through better management and systematic process improvement. I help clients by applying my problem solving, organizational, process improvement, strategic and leadership skills to challenging problems. My core competencies are managing important and highly visible projects, advising on and executing process improvements, developing solutions to complex problems, and developing strategic and tactical plans. I prefer to work closely with top executives and small, highly motivated teams. I also like to collaborate with consulting firms and other independent consultants on specific projects. Wisconsin engagements are preferred but opportunities nationwide are also considered.


The services I provide include:

  • Process Improvement (Six Sigma, reengineering)
  • Performance Measurement
  • Managing Information Technology
  • Leading Change
  • Purchasing and Supply Chain
  • Project Management
  • Strategic and Operational Planning
  • Public Speaking
  • Program Planning and Management
  • Management Systems

Background Information

I have held executive positions in both the public and private sectors before starting work as a consultant.  My most recently he was the Vice President – Performance Improvement for Alliant Energy. At Alliant Energy I led a three-year Lean Six Sigma deployment. I was also responsible for corporate-wide project management, performance measurement, and executive performance contracting. My previous assignment at Alliant Energy was as Managing Director – Budgeting, Facilities, and Supply Chain. Prior to joining Alliant Energy in 1999, I held several senior executive positions in Wisconsin State government. These included Deputy Secretary for the Department of Workforce Development, State Purchasing Director, administrator for several large shared services divisions, and Executive Budget Team Leader. I have a Master’s Degree from the La Follette School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
