As a licensed professional engineer, Steve George brings more than 25 years of chemical process industry leadership to help manufacturing companies of all types take advantage of their well-earned research and experimentation (R&E) tax credits. Having seen that American innovation occurs in every facet of an operation – from the shop floor to the board room – he is uniquely positioned to help clients identify qualified research activities. His first-hand experience with $100-million-plus mergers and acquisitions from both sides of the table is an invaluable asset in effectively identifying opportunities and creating efficiencies in manufacturing and related processes.
His company was a pioneer in the ISO 9000 certification of process industries. The documentation processes required for ISO compliance are directly related to R&E documentation and support. Steve is black belt and six sigma certified, and an instructor for General Electric’s Excellence Through Quality training program.
Steve’s accomplishments include designing customer-specific, integrated reporting software mechanisms to capture research and experimentation qualified activities, supply costs and contract research. Much of the time these reporting mechanisms are immediately available from existing reporting systems. In addition, he has also designed, built and commissioned chemical processing plants in Mexico, Europe and China.
