Mission:  delivering superb bottom line results through exemplary interim executive management.

Sometimes a business needs a fresh perspective.

Sometimes it needs a complement to its leadership.

Sometimes it just needs a kick in the pants . . .

Regardless of what your business needs, my 30 years of cross industry, multiple market, international product and service expertise will generate a substantial return on investment.

Just a few of my proven deliverables include increased revenues, operating efficiencies and margins, employee performance and brand awareness.

"Al Zielinski is the Red Adair of general management consultants."
A quote from a 20-year client.

An Executive Summary of what I bring to your table.

  • A track record of successfully building companies and brands through highly efficient market and operations management.
  • Twenty-five years of profit-driven leadership resolving startup, turnaround and growth challenges in a myriad of markets and economic conditions.
  • A proven ability to combine engineering, strategic planning, marketing, operations, technology and sales expertise in transforming lackluster products and services into compelling, easily understood, high value propositions.

A "Swiss Army Knife" of solutions with over 30 years of hands-on experience complementing a classical education in engineering and business. I bring high energy, determination and strict adherence to a line from the movie Apollo 13: "Failure is not an option; not on my watch."
Most importantly, I bring the capability of building a unique culture in today's short-term focus business world: A Warrior Ethos
