I have devoted over 27 years of my professional life to the industrial distribution industry. I began my career in 1993 with a leading electrical distributor and in 1999 joined a Japanese industrial distribution company where I spent the majority of my career focusing on the Japanese automotive sector. This industry has afforded me the opportunity to be a valued business partner with major manufacturing companies including Aisin U.S.A. Mfg., Cummins Engine Co., Toyota Industries Corp, Linamar Corporation and Gestamp Automoción, S.A. I am very customer service focused and enjoy helping others find solutions.
I enjoy most outdoor activities and spending quality time with my family. I’m definitely not a “couch potato” and prefer to be on the go but when I do find myself on the couch I enjoy watching sports and particularly my Indiana football teams, Colts and Hoosiers! I also enjoy traveling outside the country and especially to my favorite vacation spot in the Dominican Republic. I try to live each day with a purpose and often reflect on a quote that I wrote years ago, “A purposeful life rolls smooth and free, a life without purpose seizes up and drags.” –B. Gregory
