Industrial General Manager – VP – President

Is it possible to increase prices and gain market share… at the same time? Raise production yet make the work safer? Build inventories and still put more cash in the bank?

Who does things like that?

As a recruiter, and as a Small Business guy, I’ve heard plenty of Turn Around stories. They usually feature some high wire act – and no net.

In particular, no net profit.

And there’s always some dramatic mix of tension, resourcefulness, and massive will power. All of it pitted against failure, depression, and futility. Honestly, with all this, why does anyone read fiction? Real life is so much more exciting.

International Sales Manager – Process Control and Instrumentation

I’ve frequently emphasized the importance of having access to an international sales stream. Here’s an excellent solution on the hardware side.

Let’s say you have a promising company that manufactures technical products. Process controls and instrumentation, for example. You’re doing $20 million to $25 million a year.

The U.S. market has been cranky. South America is no help. Europe is going to… well, we don’t know. And Asia is all over the place.

How do you grow your sales in a world like that?
