Mr. Granito has been a proponent of Lean Methodology for over 20 years. In a highly industrial environment, he has seen a company reduce their lead times by 50%, while increasing profitability.

He has worked for companies with less than 100 employees and companies with over 250,000 and has consulted with state and federal agencies, on both large and small projects.

As president of FSH Solutions, Mr. Granito uses his expertise in business development, strategic planning and corporate training to improve the overall performance of companies.
