Early Career

After a variety of jobs, which were of little challenge, Karl joined the family business, Zimmer Paper Products Incorporated, in 1975. He worked his way through the organization and gained experience in every functional area. He worked as a cost accountant, a QC technician, installed and operated the company's first computer, and worked in technical sales as a Product Manager. After serving as Operations Manager, Karl became President and COO in 1988.

It was during this time that Karl began to study NLP and became more interested in what made people behave in certain ways. Karl was particularly interested in helping people change old patterns of behavior that no longer served them so they could begin using new patterns, empowering behaviors that allowed them to reach their goals, to be more successful.

Karl continued his work with the company, becoming CEO in 1993. Under Karl's leadership, with the help of many dedicated managers and workers, the company continued to grow significantly, and in 1997, the family sold the business to a valued customer with promises to uphold the reputation earned over nearly seven decades of dedicated service to their industry.

Changed Forever

Karl was "tapped on the shoulder" while in his office, one day, and that changed Karl's life, forever. Karl is sharing his broad experience and his spiritual awareness with others so that they may realize their dreams.

Karl founded and was the first President of Executive Limousines Indianapolis, LLC, which continues to serve Central Indiana residents, organizations, and visitors. Karl sold the company in order to devote all his time to pursuing his passion and his life's mission, which is what he is doing, now.

The Very Early Years

Karl was born in Queens, New York and moved to Denmark before he was three. When Karl was four, he and his family moved to the Netherlands, where they lived until Karl was nearly ten years old, at which time they moved back to New York. After just one year in New York, the family moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, where Karl stayed until he graduated from high school.

Karl moved to Tacoma, Washington, where he attended the University of Puget Sound. His studies then took him to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and back to Indianapolis. Karl is member of Class XXX of the Wabash Executive Program at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
