About Todd

Background in Global Consumer Goods Manufacturing, product development: concept to market, foreign sourcing and retail distribution. Achieved 50% annual sales growth in 10 of 12 years in my first company, growing it to 130 employees.

I'm a lean manufacturing / Six Sigma Black Belt, now applying those lean methodologies by consulting small businesses and startups.

I have co-founded some entrepreneur / tech groups in So. Utah to create a startup buzz and culture. One group has over 180 members and we meet monthly. Next step is to blend the local tech scene with Southern Utah University. I am organizing the first Startup Weekend Cedar City coming April 2013!

On the consumer goods side, I have consulted manufacturers and inventors with product/prototype development and market development / validation.

On the tech side I have assisted startups with lean canvas, customer validation, accountability and marketing. Biggest success year to date was taking a local beauty blogger from 200k hits a month to 1mil in August! Yeah baby, that's what I'm talkin' about!!
