  • Chad has been a joy to work with from Day 1. He is able to accommodate my volatile schedule and still produce quality work, at an affordable price, on time, every time. In addition to his dependability, his Christian work ethic brings a unique quality to the final product that I just don’t find with all of our service providers. I would highly recommend him!

  • Chad is probably the most knowledgeable and practical practitioner of Continuous improvements I know today. When I first met Chad some years ago, he had a great background in Lean concepts. He then took on the 6 Sigma Tools and within a year, he became a true expert in both Lean and 6 Sigma. His character, willingness to learn and teach and true passion for continuous improvement makes him a great asset in any organization.

    Ed Fernandes
    Reliability Manager at Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.
  • I worked with Chad for a few years in a post-merger situation. I was always impressed with Chad’s knowledge level and his ability to adapt his skills to a new environment. What really shone through was his passion for change and how to educate people through those changes. I have met with Chad a couple of times in his latest role, and that passion still exists today. He is an individual who continually learns and imparts that knowledge well. Whatever field of continuous improvement you need help with, give him a call.
