In addition to his business success, he holds the rare distinction of overcoming complete paralysis to walk again and function normally, even though many medical professionals said it couldn’t be achieved. His greatest accomplishments have all been realized after conquering this devastating and life changing injury.
After beginning his career and spending 20 years in the demanding industry of aircraft maintenance, Fred founded a firm that manufactured interior components for VIP/Head of State aircraft. Under his leadership, the company developed unique products such as steam baths, lightweight composite shower structures and mechanical components that defined the company and created a brand. By consistently focusing on core beliefs in leadership growth and process improvement, Fred positioned the firm for a lucrative acquisition by a competitor.
Following this aviation industry success, Fred invented and patented a lightweight backpack chair. After establishing a foothold, the patents were licensed and the products are currently marketed in the western states and Pacific Rim.
