About Me

After nearly 30 years of progressive experience in sales, purchasing, product design, estimating, quality engineering, and project management in challenging technical environments, I have started TEK-Sales and Solutions where I can best serve the customer. I have a career record of developing strong relationships with customers and vendors and would be honored to serve and support you and your company with standard press tooling, press maintenance and equipment repair, as well as automation, and other industrial services.

 

Serving the Industry and Community

Serving as a Board Member is my way of giving back to the industry. I enjoy serving as the District Education Chair where we provide scholarship funds for students pursuing post-secondary education for careers in manufacturing in support of the metal form industry. Prior to the pandemic in 2019, we awarded eight scholarships to employees and family members of Tennessee PMA member companies totaling approximately $10,000. Also awarded were grants to several high schools, vocational schools, and universities totaling about $5,500, as well as $2,000 for tool and die apprenticeship programs. The scholarship and grant program continues to this day.

  • PMA is a full-service trade association representing the $137-billion Metalforming industry of North America—the industry that creates precision metal products using stamping, fabricating, spinning, slide forming and roll forming technologies, and other value-added processes. Its more than 850 member companies also include suppliers of equipment, materials and services to the industry.

I am an Adult Volunteer Leader serving on the Council Shooting Sports Committee, District Activities Chair, and local Troop Committee Member. I enjoy training our future business and community leaders in the areas of responsibly citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations

As a Tennessee Tech alumni, I also enjoy serving on the Advisory Board for the Department of Manufacturing and Engineering Technology.
