Donald H. Nyman is a recognized authority in maintenance organizational structure, functional control systems, planning and scheduling, and overall functional improvement.
His 57 year career began at the plant level as an industrial engineer with a leading Fortune 100 company. With eight years of industrial engineering experience under his belt, he then spent the next seven years with a combination of three management consulting firms as the demand for his expertise accelerated. He then returned to corporate life as the Director of Industrial Engineering and Internal Consulting with capital budget responsibilities. For the remaining 34 years, Don founded his own management consulting firm, The Nyman Consulting Group. His firm was contracted by four additional management consulting firms as his unique guidance and expertise continued to be highly demanded.
In composite, Don devoted 60% of his career to maintenance excellence and reliability and 40% to the operational (production) side of business. During his career, he directly supported over 300 organizations in 16 countries (or five continents), including 46 of the United States. Through public seminars, books, articles, and associates, he has influenced hundreds of additional organizations, touching the following industries in order of heaviest experience and influence: food, primary metals, paper, chemicals, utilities, government, financial, education, and healthcare.
Don currently resides in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Although now retired, he remains active by writing books and articles, collaborating with associates, and consulting for MVP One.
