Employment History

West Central Manufacturing, Rapid City, SD 57701 – Owner – I bought this a failing business. I manage day to day operations of the steel door and frame manufacturing plant. I set up a distributor network for the Western and Central United States and managed 20-40 employees including production, marketing, sales and distribution.  By implementing LEAN manufacturing principles, with the help of SD Manufacturing Technology, I eventually sold it as a successful manufacturing business.

Scotchman Industries, Philip, SD 57567 – Director of Marketing – I was responsible for inside and outside sales, data entry and shipping. I worked with independent manufacture representatives and disitributors both nationallly and internationally, as well as attended trade shows to advertise and demonstrate fleet.
