He then returned to Erie to a company that was just launching, where he learned the fundamental elements of business in an integrated way. He built Decision Associates on the model that marketing, sales, planning, operations, material management, engineering and employee skills had to all click for the company to compete, and uses those principles when he works with his clients to move them through successive stages of growth.

"At the time Elizabeth Cipolla from Decision Associates began consulting for CBB, we were going through a period of difficult transition. We knew there were administrative items that needed to be addressed, but Elizabeth went further. She could see that our culture had been negatively impacted by a series of challenges in previous years. More importantly, she knew how to help us change that.

Thanks to the programs Elizabeth developed for CBB, we enjoy a completely different culture. There is a positivity and comradery that permeates our organization now. People report feeling appreciated and more part of the process. There is laughter again, and that's a wonderful sound to hear."
