    Recently I was approached by a community college administrator about working with them to improve some of their processes. As I read her request one of the things I noticed was she wanted to know what other community colleges had I worked with to improve their processes. In my mind, it doesn't make a difference if you worked with other community colleges at all because process improvement doesn't differentiate as to industry or organizations.

    Continuous process improvement ensures that your processes are capable of meeting or exceeding internal or external customer requirements and business performance objectives. Continuous process improvement consists of the rigorous application of the following activities:

    Mr. Guggenmoos has designed, implemented and provides assessments of utility vegetation management programs. In evaluating the prudence of vegetation management programs Mr. Guggenmoos has developed methodologies to assess their efficacy by predicting the impact of vegetation management program as practiced, on the future costs and reliability of electric systems.

    Areas of Consultation:
    • Storm hardening electric transmission and distribution systems to quantitatively manage tree-caused service interruptions
    • Advise and develop protocols for assessments of power line tree exposure and mitigation
    • Advise on least cost vegetation management by synchronizing economics and ecology
    • Advise on impacts of vegetation management program alternatives, modifications
    • Provide context for vegetation management, greenhouse gas mitigation measures in a competitive energy market
    • Facilitate for management, staff, contractors and stake holders an actionable understanding of ecological principles and their impacts on vegetation management needs and costs

    • Develop and advise on quantification, monitoring and verification of biotic greenhouse gas mitigation measures
    Abstract — Severe weather events such as ice and tropical storms routinely cause extensive damage to electrical distribution systems. Much of the damage and service loss can be attributed to trees. Events where service restoration spans days or weeks are generally closely examined through regulator directed hearings. Even when no specific actions are subsequently

    Abstract - For power transmission systems compliant with safety codes and reliability standards there remains a risk of tree-caused interruptions from the in-fall of trees from outside the right-of-way. This paper reports on the quantification of tree exposure outside National Grid’s transmission corridors and examines the variables impacting the risk of a line contact by trees

    Mark Riley Banking Operations Expert PhotoMark C. Riley is an experienced and successful former Bank Chief Executive Officer whose background includes leading the turnaround of two banks that had been operating under regulatory agreements upon arrival. Mr. Riley’s relevant experience was overseeing all areas of his banks including the development, approval, and implementation of effective risk management programs.

    For example, as CEO, Mr. Riley was involved in all phases of lending from business development to credit analysis and underwriting to overseeing loan approval and review process, providing due diligence of client bank loan portfolios, developing and overseeing workouts of nonperforming loans. This is particularly important in Expert Witness support as Mr. Riley’s background will carry more weight than technical specialists such as Loan Officers. Using loan officers, analysts and even lending group managers can provide the technical side of lending (underwriting, documentation, recordation and related nuts and bolts). As a Bank CEO & Director with lending expertise, Mr. Riley can provide all of that, but more importantly to a lawsuit, is knowledge of Director Loan Committees and their response to weaknesses that occurred in the technical side and what actions did they take to ameliorate or exacerbate the problem.

    Mr. Riley has provided Expert Witness services, including consulting, reports, depositions and testimony, to attorneys representing the FDIC, banks, bank clients, and related companies.
