After spending 11 years there, I have left my position as CEO of The
Bell Group/Rio Grande, and I am relocating to the Chicago area to
return to the field of management consulting. This is also a return

the years. Thank you to those who have tracked me down these past

inordinate amount of time forwarding email to me!), and I hope my
other Orchid friends will make note of my new contact so
we can continue to communicate in the future.
