I'm the owner of Ardlock, LLC. I operate the business out of Cambridge, Massachusetts where I live with my wife Andrea and our daughter Alexis.
Prior to starting Ardlock, I was a management consultant with Strategy& (formerly Booz and Company). My work at Strategy& spanned across consumer, industrial, media and pharma. I've worked on a number of business issues including strategic planning, sales, finance and operations. This experience has taught me how to develop a strategy which sets a company up for growth even when faced with a challenging business environment.
Before Strategy&, I worked in operations for 3M where I began as a process engineer responsible for manufacturing processes. As an engineer, I was on the front lines of operations and responded to everyday issues to make sure we could continue to make and sell product. As I grew in this environment, I transitioned into a new product commercialization role with wider operational responsibilities. Through this role, I gained valuable experience across a variety of functions including supply chain, sourcing, and product finance.
As for education, I've obtained an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BSc. in Chemical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
