Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family and three children. I’m actively involved in several professional organizations; I enjoy golf, basketball and the occasional political discussion.
I am a project leader and business strategist, focused on helping companies grow and become more efficient. Prior to finding my business consulting niche, I was in engineering, sales and distribution in the office furniture, aerospace, aluminum manufacturing, and consumer products industries here in West Michigan. I founded DPT in 2001 based on three core principles we still follow today.
We focus on a customer’s business needs first so technology can support, not lead, the effort to improve performance. We provide our clients with experienced and trusted local resources, and our employees with a family friendly place to thrive professionally.
We promote the highest professional and business ethics standards in dealing with all of our stakeholders including clients, employees, partners, suppliers, and the community.
The last principle is deeply rooted in the character of the firm. It is also represented by one of my favorite quotes that I frequently use with my kids – "Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking."
