I’m a mechanical engineer-turned innovation guy (PE, MBA) developing new market intelligence services for our members. The Association Of Equipment Manufacturers serves companies making equipment for the construction, agriculture, mining, forestry and utility industries.
I also speak on competitive intelligence and social media.
My career has taken me from engineering through product management, pricing, competitive intelligence, product development, and managing information products. Most of the time I'm tasked with creating new functions, new processes, or new products.
I have a variety of personal interests, including woodworking, music, and writing. I don’t consider reading a hobby - It’s a necessity and an obsession. I have several websites, and am very interested in web publishing and social media.
My greatest joy is my family - my wife Susan and our beautiful daughters - who light up my every day.
