What excites you about industrial manufacturing?

The level of ingenuity and innovation that takes place in US manufacturing is unlike any other country in the world. We believe there is a significant opportunity through re-shoring, investment and automation to grow US industrial businesses over the next several decades and lead the global economy. Our firm takes great pride in our ability to invest in this renaissance.

How do you spend your free time away from work?

I spend a large amount of my free time with my wife and daughter in addition to biking, running and golfing.
