Currently, Founder, President and CEO of 3Sixty Management Services, LLC. And author of the book Tighten the Lug Nuts. 3Sixty Management Services is a complete management services company with seasoned professionals focused on, Thought Leadership, Leadership Development and Process Improvement.

Prior, I served as CEO and Director of UniTek Global Services based in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. UniTek Global Services is a provider of engineering, construction management and installation services to companies specializing in the telecommunications field. In this role, I was responsible for leading restructuring and sales efforts along with rapidly building the enterprise brand and developing a culture needed to integrate past acquisitions, while creating a unified company with one vision and brand.     

Prior to UniTek I spent 36 years at UPS, a global corporation with one of the most recognized and admired brands in the world. UPS is the world's largest package delivery company and a leading global provider of specialized transportation and logistics services, managing the flow of goods, funds and information in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.

During my 36-year career at UPS, I served as President and General Manager, of UPS Supply Chain Solutions. Here, my responsibilities included the integration of over 20 acquisitions that became UPS Supply Chain Solutions, a global entity.

My responsibilities included the execution of revenue growth and business goals with complete P&L responsibilities in North and South America. This business unit provided global transportation, freight, logistics and distribution, and international trade services. As it’s leader I had to develop a distribution strategy among the many verticals we served and build an organic growth strategy.  The hallmark was the development and implementation of a health care distribution strategy that today is the growth engine for UPS Supply Chain Solutions.

During my career I also served as President of Retail Operations which included MBE & The Rebranding to the UPS Store Network. Mail Boxes Etc., Inc. (MBE), a wholly owned subsidiary of United Parcel Service (“UPS”) of America, Inc., is the world’s largest franchisor of retail shipping, postal, printing and business service centers. The UPS Store® and Mail Boxes Etc. ® together comprise nearly 5500 independently owned locations in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada.

This opportunity gave me the opportunity, insight and knowledge of franchising and franchising networks along with internet sales to compliment same store sales and new store sales.

Finally, during my traditional UPS career I held an array of positions including: Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the South California District, the Iowa and Update NY districts. I was President of the East Central Region and the Southeast Region where I had responsibility for all facets of the business in the 10 districts, throughout the nine states, along the eastern seaboard and District of Columbia that encompassed 72,000 employees.
