Previous achievements- National Sales Manager (Night Shift Auto), Chief Operations Officer (Equity-4-U, Inc), United States Army (Army achievement medal recipient)
Currently- Board Member/Share Holder (Equity-4-U, Inc.), Owner (RC Fullerton, LLC)
I grew up in the construction trades with parents who operated a home remodeling and cabinetry manufacturing company. I spent countless hours roofing, framing, hanging/finishing sheetrock, sanding, staining, finishing cabinets and wood products we developed and sold throughout my adolescent years. I was fortunate enough to earn a sales position with an industrial tooling company (B.C. MacDonald) after a successful career in the machining industry with F.A.G. Bearing. I left this career to open a lumber yard, however I sold it and landed back in sales as national sales manager with Night Shift Auto. I left this position to pursue the development of Equity-4-U, Inc. which is now one of our nation’s leading bi-weekly payment managers in automotive dealership F&I product offerings nationwide.
In my years of travel and working with manufacturer’s it is my belief that a company’s success is greatly attributed to its employees.
This belief has led to what Trade Job Placement is today and our business model and intention is to assist the wood product community with recruiting and talent acquisition. It is my personal hope that the company grows to be a valuable tool and compliments our customers continued success.

I have spent my whole life in the wood working industry. I have been fortunate to have gained experience in many aspects of making, buying and selling wood and wood products. I gained this experience from starting at the bottom and working my way up and learning along the way. The main rule I have learned in this journey is to make relationships and ethics a must in all business practices. This wide range of experience will help me match excellent job candidates with excellent companies.
My experience includes: Sourcing, ERP/MRP, Standard Cost Management, International and Domestic Factory Evaluation, Negotiation, Quality Control, Facility Start Up, Inventory Control, Materials Management, Logistics Management, Procurement Management, Production Scheduling, International travel, Lumber Processing and Yield Analysis.
