In early 2015, I joined Impact Washington as President and Center Director after six years as a board member. My background is primarily electromechanical manufacturing in the Pacific NW. As an entrepreneur, and CEO of several successful companies and a former Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year, I have a strong appreciation and passion for the challenges involved with building competitive manufacturing businesses. It is my hope that this background will be useful to you as you continue to build and grow your company.
We have assisted over 1500 clients over the last 10 years, many with Lean Manufacturing implementations. Today we offer a broad range of services, some of which are outlined below.
Our relationship with NIST differentiates us from other consulting organizations, as we are part of a national organization that has over 3000 scientists and a team of manufacturing specialists in every state. This partnership allows us to offer you access to cutting edge research and technology, access to potential grant opportunities at both the federal and state level, and premiere consulting services at very affordable rates. As a non-profit, our goal is to help you grow.
I am pleased to be a part of the mission of Impact Washington to strengthen manufacturing in our state. We look forward to a continued dialogue and working with you in the near future.
