Nathan’s work includes consulting a well-known consumer goods company in an engagement that produced more than $200 million in new revenue in the first year, and advising a leading, global sports clothing-and-lifestyle company to take a new approach to updating their ERP system, reducing upgrade time by half.

Prior to co-founding Insigniam, Nathan founded two other successful enterprises and served as chief executive of four corporations. As a young man, he served as an officer and aviator in the United States Navy, executive support officer to the Secretary of Defense, and national security advisor to the U.S. Senate Majority Leader.

Bonnie Wingate

Since 1994, Bonnie Wingate has been connecting executives with the power Insigniam provides to catalyze breakthrough results in their most critical and challenged initiatives. She has worked with executives of Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries, including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, fast-moving consumer goods, food and beverage, and banking.

Among Bonnie’s clients are a medical device company that accelerated their R&D timeline by 75% in four and a half months, an IT department that raised their ComputerWorld ranking from #170 to #17 in one year, and the R&D division of a consumer product company that created and commercialized what the industry called
“the holy grail” product. The company’s products held the top three places in the market for years, and for six years they and their competitors had been working on the next-generation product. The company which solved “the holy grail” would own the category’s future. After just six months of working with Insigniam, R&D created the product that had evaded them and their competitors for years, retaining market dominance.

In one engagement, Laura successfully facilitated the training of a group of change agents at a non-profit organization with 2.4 million members in North America. Participants walked away as better communicators and with specific action plans to mobilize the organization for a culture change.

Prior to joining Insigniam, Laura led marketing projects at a $1B+ annual revenue business unit within Medtronic, where she updated and received approval for over two dozen sales materials in a matter of weeks, as compared to a previous average of 7-8 months. Her effective communication and cross-functional teamwork abilities are applauded across marketing, regulatory, engineering and physician education teams. As a result of her work, a sizing tool that was rated #1 in importance by salespeople was refreshed and delivered in record time. The tool continues to directly benefit physicians and patients in the Operating Room in the areas of patient safety and case completion times.

Laura holds her B.B.A. in marketing and international business from The Goizueta Business School at Emory University prior to earning her MBA from The Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine. She currently serves as the Young Alumni Chair for the Dean's Leadership Circle at UCI Paul Merage School of Business.

Consultant — United States

Bruce Zimmer

For over thirty years, Bruce Zimmer has consulted companies across a variety of geographies and industries, including pharmaceuticals, food, and automotive parts.
Bruce led a breakthrough project for a major automotive parts company whose agriculture tire division was facing a 40% loss of market share. As a result of the engagement, the team reduced the number of components required to construct the tires by 38% and reduced tire mass by 44% while exceeding their durability target. His work with a client in the household and personal products industry led to savings of nearly $15 million in inventory carrying costs in seven months.
Additionally, Bruce led the cultural transformation of a major international food retail conglomerate that resulted in the company’s elevation from being ranked “worst in safety” to “best in class.” The client also yielded gains in on-time delivery, quality, and workplace morale. In another engagement, Bruce shepherded a family-owned generic pharmaceutical business through the transition to becoming a profitable, technology-driven, specialty business.
Bruce holds an M.A. in Organizational Development and a B.S. in English and Education from Kean University.
