About the Author

Hello all! In addition to a Bachelor’s in History from Indiana University and a Master’s in Higher Education from Ball State University, I have more than 35 years of experience leading HR & Recruiting, Career Development, and Leadership Coaching efforts for business professionals throughout the United States. For 20 years, I served as Regional HR & Recruiting Leader for Deloitte…retiring as a Firm Director. During my tenure, Deloitte was named, six times, to Fortune magazine’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in America.

I recruited, trained, and coached thousands of individuals during this time, and played a key role in designing and delivering a nationally-recognized leadership program aimed at preparing Senior Managers for admission to Deloitte’s Partner ranks. Currently, I consult with the leaders of various businesses on ‘Human Capital Issues,’ ‘Leadership Topics,’ ‘Succession Planning,’ and ‘Business Development Initiatives.’

Prior to my business career, I served as a Career Planning & Placement Director and Assistant Football Coach at the college level. 

I’ve designed and delivered numerous professional development programs. This includes teaching leadership concepts for Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, the MBA program at Xavier University’s Williams College of Business, the University of Kentucky, Miami University, and I currently teach Strategic Partner Leadership and Professionalism courses in the Lindner Honors-PLUS Program at the University of Cincinnati.
In addition to teaching, coaching, and presenting, I truly enjoy writing. I have authored 3 ‘personal development’ books and am in the process of writing a screen play on the 1960s and the Vietnam War (I am a veteran of the U.S. Air Force). My wife, Marla, and I have two sons and eleven grandchildren…and a Springer Spaniel, Molly.
