Professional Experience:

40 + years working exclusively within the OPE industry, dealer, distribution and manufacture levels, in all levels for management.
I enjoy partnering closely with independent dealers that have the passion for the industry. Our independent sales and service partners are the lifeblood of our success!
New products being introduced in the industry by all OEMs will be a big part of the industry’s future success.
I define success as bringing the best out of those we meet every day.
