Karl is an Accredited Senior Executive Associate of the Institute for Independent Business and founded the Zimmer Advisory Group International to better serve business owners and leaders. He also earned a certificate in Public Policy Mediation.
Karl is the founder of Profit in Harmony® and RULE®. Karl is also a Reiki Master, which he pursued because of Reiki's profound contribution to his recovery from a motorcycle (dirt bike) accident in 1999.
Karl has served on the Board of Directors of The Villages and was interim President of Joyful Living (see Favorite Charities). Karl also serves on the Advisory Board of the International Center for Intercultural Communication at IUPUI.
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.
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

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.
