Mr. Carroll has been a Lean Six Sigma Practitioner for the last 19 years. He started his Lean Journey in 1998 after graduating from Texas A&M University. Over the course of his professional career, he has held many professional roles including: Engineer, Project Manager, Continuous Improvement Lead, Operations Manager, and Continuous Improvement Program Manager. Mr. Carroll received his Master Black Belt through years of hard work, dedication, and mentorship by Jim Mikulski, who was himself, mentored by a first-generation team member of the General Electric Six Sigma System under Jack Welch.


Throughout Mr. Carroll’s storied career, he has been a part of and/or has lead over 275 Kaizen/Continuous Improvement initiatives – ranging the spectrum from “Shop Floor” Implementations, Entire Facility Re-designs, Cross Functional Improvement Initiatives, to Senior Leadership Strategy Liaison, etc. Mr. Carroll has made a name for himself for his uncanny ability to institute Lean Six Sigma Methodologies at every level of an Organization and serve as a catalyst for change. His ability to relate complex concepts from the Shop Floor to the Board Room is second to none. He credits his success to Jim and all the teams that he has had the privilege to work with over the last 19 years.


Mr. Carroll fully embraces Lean Six Sigma in his professional career and personal life as well, he states that it is one of his core competencies, among others. He explains that his greatest accomplishment “it is not all of the awards and recognitions I have received over the years, rather the difference I have made in other people’s lives by the use of Lean Six Sigma”.
