My skills enable Integra to create the sale environment that works for buyers and sellers of industrial machinery. A native of West Michigan, I started my career at Steelcase, a major office furniture manufacturer, working in all manufacturing departments in leadership positions for over 22 years. I left the manufacturing business to take on a career and ownership of my residential real estate appraisal business for 10 years. With an entrepreneurial spirit, I started a small business in the energy industry called the Refuel Group and helped to develop a unique sustainability program for a waste-to-energy biofuel system.
With a love for travel and a skillset for managing complex, large scale projects, I changed careers and started my own business as a contract Project Manager setting up multi-million dollar auction sales for asset management companies, including Hilco Industrial, for over 12 years. This valuable experience has prepared me for my new position at Integra Asset Solutions as VP of Auction Operations where I look forward to bringing a wealth of knowledge and industry expertise to help customers gain the highest results and success.
I am loving life in Michigan where I live with my wife Robin and visit with my grandchildren often.
