David is a Lead/Senior Consultant with PSI. Since joining the company in 2005, he has provided consulting and other project support for clients in a wide range of industries, most prominently the heavy manufacturing industry and electric utility sector. David has worked in a broad variety of project types, including facility design/construction, product localization, product development/introduction, supplier selection, cost reduction and international sporting events. His consulting experience includes extensive international work, particularly in China and other locations within the Asia-Pacific region.
David’s work in China was primarily in support of initiatives for Caterpillar Inc. where he facilitated plan development and consulted throughout project execution. “CXL Buys Direct and Saves”, one of the earliest initiatives, was recognized as a company-wide award-winning success due to its results for lowering Logistics and Supply Chain costs in the Asia-Pacific region. Another initiative, the “Dynasty” Motor Grader product introduction and localization project, was proclaimed to be the Caterpillar model for introducing a product into an emerging market. Later projects included design, construction and start-up for facilities, most notably for the Caterpillar (Suzhou) Company, Limited (CSCL) plant near Shanghai.
David’s work experience prior to joining PSI includes 15 years in the textile manufacturing industry. He has worked both domestically and internationally in a series of manufacturing and technical managerial roles, including as Project Manager for a major facility expansion/modernization, as Technical Manager for a facility design/construction/start-up (part of a four- year expatriate assignment in Mexico), and as a Process Improvement Manager.
