  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    After selling my manufacturing business in 2006 and retiring in 2012, I am dedicated to helping other CEOs and business leaders find their purpose and achieve the highest levels of performance personally and professionally.
  • About me
    My father once told me that to be successful you must do the things that lead to success, don’t do the things that lead to failure, but first, you must define success. I have built a $20M company from the ground up and after selling it in 2006, I founded Lean and Motivated Incentives, a management consulting practice, to help others with exceptional growth and profitability. I have been at the top, fallen, and risen again. Now I love being a guide on the Climb!

    As a Vistage Chair, I aim to help my members increase profitability and make smarter decisions while maintaining their core values and integrity. Through monthly group meetings where we gather in a confidential and non-competitive environment, our only goal is to help each other climb. Through one-to-one coaching and expert speakers, the Vistage method has proven to help elevate companies and create better leaders.

    I recently wrote my first book, “Purpose: A Journey from Breakdown to Breakthrough” which is an accomplishment I am proud of. I learned to be open and vulnerable, and I strive to cultivate a group where my members are encouraged to do the same. Leading a Vistage group gives me the opportunity to help other business owners find their purpose, provide an outside perspective, collaborate, and expect action.

    Supporting leaders is my passion. I have the honor of serving as a mentor at The Wolfe Center for Entrepreneurship at University of Houston for over 20 years, and I teach a Junior Achievement course in Entrepreneurship and Career Success for middle and high schoolers. Through this, I am able to make a positive impact in my community. When I am not in the classroom or boardroom, I am spending time with my wife of 52 years.
