- Las Vegas Nevada
I'm an experienced executive + world traveler, as comfortable and effective in the Crew room as I am in the Board room. I climbed from the ground up in one of the world's premiere corporate environments. I have old school values with a forever young spirit that makes me fun and easy to work with, especially for those that want and can handle the truth.
I'd value the opportunity to talk about how I may be able to contribute to your success.

Awesomness: 100% http://tinyurl.com/awesomnessmanifesto
"What is awesomeness? Awesomeness happens when thick — real, meaningful — value is created by people who love what they do, added to insanely great stuff, and multiplied by communities who are delighted and inspired because they are authentically better off. That's a better kind of innovation, built for 21st century economics." Don't worry about measuring it, Just Be It!
I'm guided by many:
OPERATIONS DIRECTOR / HR DIRECTOR / EXECUTIVE PRODUCER / CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Results-driven Omni Executive motivated to contribute broad scope of noteworthy experience in
Business Development, Operations, Training, Branding, Fiscal Administration, Human Resources and
Event Production toward actively supporting a dynamic organization in optimizing performance.
Senior executive with verifiable year-after-year success achieving revenue, profit and business growth objectives within start-up, turnaround, rapid-change and long-standing environments.
Extensive experience with highly-engineered systems, which require understanding of critical business drivers, in multiple markets and industries; highly successful in building relationships with top-level decision makers, seizing control of critical problem areas and delivering on great expectations.
Customer-focused, innovative and performance-driven. Responsible for the development and motivation of teams impacting more than 585,000 employees and P&L results of business zone with 2,600 restaurants, exceeding $4 billion in annual sales.
Operations Management ♦ Business Growth ♦ Strategic Planning
Performance & Quality Standards ♦ Branding & Promotion ♦ Customer Satisfaction & Allegiance
Leadership / Team Development ♦ P&L Management / Budgeting ♦ Supplier Relations
Change Management ♦ Strategic Partnering ♦ Staffing / Training / Retention
Multi-media Production ♦ Product Development & Integration ♦ Incentive & Event Production
Picture this... Business as usual in shades of gray, everybody's "working hard" but results are falling short of potential. Let's imagine all that could be; start adding color and breathe some life into to the scenario.
Assess, Innovate, plan to win, budget, fund, communicate, train, motivate and align thoughts, emotions and actions to realize the Future Picture - just as visualized. I share this skill with the most effective and valued leaders, it comes naturally to me and it's how I roll.
Effective steps for improving business profitability are analogous to filling a water bucket.
When the bucket is not overflowing, something's wrong. Waste and pilferage can cause leaks. Sometimes there's just stagnation and evaporation from the heat of competition. Too much dipping into and not enough pouring into can cause a deficit. Slackers must find the joy of contributing more or the door.
Experience in Operations Management and Consulting have yielded expertise in the best, most efficient ways to plug leaks, improve water pressure and keep the bucket overflowing into the company coffers.
On my watch, making $ = security + Fun for all contributors.
I've learned from the best, over a long period of time, that engaging and utilizing experts can be effective and productive. I don't have all the answers, reinventing the wheel is wasteful, learning from your own mistakes is an unnecessarily high price to pay for education and anyone can contribute a great idea.
Personal Success = The ability to be happy & enjoy your life - Dr. Wayne Dyer
Holistic Wealth = Family + Mind + Body + Spirit + Friends + Financial
Based on these formulas, I'm a personally successful, holistically wealthy (and lucky) guy that plans on being engaged in service to others, all the days of my life.
