    Dynamic quality professional and leader

    My success and reputation for turning around troubled manufacturing facilities in the areas of quality, on-time delivery and cost has lead me to my current role as principal at Steadfast Consulting LLC. We specialize in improving the performance of troubled suppliers of both the automotive, heavy truck and aerospace industries. Our secondary enterprise is developing quality management systems for certification to ISO-9001, IATF-16949 and AS-9100 standards.
