“What gives me the greatest satisfaction in my job is knowing we are helping organizations ensure their employees go home in the same condition they arrived at work.”

Dennis works with senior executives, leadership teams, and other leaders on a global basis to help them create a vision for the desired future state of their organization. He helps them identify the barriers to achieving their goals and develops actionable plans to remove those barriers in order to achieve their organizational objectives.

Dennis has led many successful business turnarounds and cultural change initiatives. In part, he accomplished this by implementing Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma principles to increase productivity, reduce rework, improve operating margins, reduce working capital, increase customer satisfaction and improve product quality.

Among his notable accomplishments is the implementation of a behavior-based safety initiative at a plastics manufacturing facility that reduced the OSHA recordable rate from 5.7 to 1.6 over a three-year period.

As an experienced safety leadership coach, Dennis has mentored company leaders from the executive level through middle management in a wide range of private and public sector organizations. He is also an accomplished speaker who has presented at numerous public events on topics such as world-class safety leadership, Significant Injury and Fatality mitigation, achieving cultural change, and employee engagement.

Prior to joining DEKRA OSR, formerly known as BST, Dennis was a vice president and general manager of a Fortune 100 international metals manufacturing corporation. He also served as the leader of his business unit’s environmental, health and safety (EHS) committee. The committee was responsible for 13 facilities throughout Asia, Europe, and North America. The business unit’s total recordable injury rate fell from 4.3 to 2.2 during the three-year period that Dennis led the EHS team.

Dennis holds a Master’s Degree in Community Psychology from Martin University in Indianapolis, IN, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV.
