Business Accelerants™ Leadership
Paul Menig has been a student of strategy and business for over four decades. As in intrapreneur at General Electric, Eaton, and Daimler he led teams of hundreds to develop and successfully bring to market products for military, aerospace, medical instrumentation, industrial automation, and transportation industries. He was schooled in setting strategy for these large multi-national companies while working with suppliers ranging in size from small privately-held companies to similar multi-national tier-1s. Concepts and management approaches such as Agile, Lean, Enterprise Operating Systems, Continuous Cost Improvement, Key Performance Indicators, and more were applied to every aspect of his work from the company to the supplier, to the department, to the project.
Since leaving the corporate world at the end of 2011, Paul has focused his energy on down-scaling these successful business disciplines to small and medium enterprise companies. As the CEO of Business Accelerants(TM), Paul advises companies from $2 million to $20 billion. In addition, Paul provides pro-bono consulting as a SCORE Business Mentor to companies typically ranging in size from startup to $2 million. In either case, the goal is to accelerate profitable growth so they can get more money from the business and more time for their lives.
Giving back is an important priority. Paul’s goals include working with small to medium businesses as a mentor for SCORE. SCORE grows successful small businesses across America, one business at a time. SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals through education and mentorship. Work is supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Check out the SCORE link for more information.
Technical Aptitude and Business Acumen
I had the pleasure to work with Paul for more than ten years during his tenure at Daimler Trucks North America. I strongly recommend him due to his impressive combination of technical aptitude and business acumen.
He is also fun to be around. When deadlines loomed or problems arose, tension can build and Paul always knew how to lighten the situation and keep the project on task. With his strong leadership skills, inclusive approach and strong grasp of industry concepts, Paul would be an asset to any organization.
