Candidate ID#25836


  • Introduced first-in-the-world technologies (Hybrid welding, UT testing, Coil end conditioning, end preparation). Trademarked IP, integrated quality systems, developed a manufacturing lifecycle, and evangelized value proposition. This grew revenue by $200M, improved throughput by 40% and margins by 7%, lowered waste by 60%, decreased conversion costs by $40/ton, and captured 15% more market share.
  • Led construction, commissioning, startup, and initial operations of $250M greenfield startup. As a result, captured 90% market share and delivered ROI within one year at $2B in US revenue; this was replicated globally to realize $2B in additional revenue.
  • Developed a strategic plan to create the first commercially viable X80 grade HSLA steel welded pipe for energy transmission. Formed partnerships with suppliers/partners, gained regulatory approvals, led prototype development/production, and initiated training. The project was completed in 90 days and generated $200M in revenue and $400M in subsequent projects.
  • Led turnaround of an underperforming facility; Built a programmatic maintenance plan, instituted Lean, Six Sigma, 5S, etc., identified assets to retrofit/upgrade, assembled a planning team and negotiated large contracts for controls upgrades, and implemented training, while renegotiating with vendors and strategic partners. This reduced WIP by 40% and nearly eliminated downtime decreased (20% to 2%). Throughput increased by 33%, revenue increased to $2B with a 4% margin increase
