With over 50 years of business experience, spanning startups to multi-national publically traded companies, Bud is able to help individuals and organizations develop their leadership skills. He started working at an early age delivering papers, cutting lawns, etc. Using the money he made through a range of jobs, he paid my way through college prep school, college, and graduate school. After gaining experience in all aspects of business at the age of 39 he was appointed CEO to turnaround a design/build construction company, which was the US subsidiary of a multi-national, publically traded company.
His career includes positions where he was responsible for operations, R&D, engineering design, business development, marketing & sales, intellectual property, turnarounds, M&A, strategic planning, litigation, etc. He has served on the boards of for profit companies, and non-profit organizations and numerous committees. For the first 40 years, his experience was primarily in manufacturing, construction, and service companies in the environmental industry.
He has worked for a public utility, small privately owned companies, large publically owned companies, and startups. Today he works with small to medium size business executives to help them achieve the extraordinary results they want. Facilitating peer-to-peer advisory groups as a Vistage Chair, coaching CEOs and senior executives, and helping young professionals develop leadership skills through the Accelerated Professionals Program allows me to work, and help, all levels of executives in their development.
By helping individuals develop their leadership skills they are able to confidently make, and be responsible for their decisions, at all levels, and be held accountable.
