I worked for John Deere Company for 33 years starting in Canada. In 1977 I moved to our headquarters in Moline, Illinois into a management position where I managed an annual budget of over $2 million and a team of 20 plus people. Responsibilities included developing parts inventory software and training for our dealer organization worldwide. I traveled extensively in the U.S., Canada, Europe and South America helping dealers manage their large parts investments, many over $1 million.
I served on the HOA Board in Deep Creek, Florida including serving as Vice President and President from 2008 through 2014. The association consists of 3900 single family home sites.
