Senior Advisors

The Muller Group Inc.

  • Karl F. Muller—President of The Muller Group, Inc., began his career in industry in the late 70’s beginning with a 200-employee, privately owned manufacturer in the Philadelphia area.  He was subsequently recruited to a major publicly held corporation and quickly rose through the ranks to become a division general manager by 1981. His operating success was attributed to his aggressive use of unique leadership strategies, measurements, and performance-based compensation linked directly to the corporation’s monthly financial performance. Karl’s strategies and methods gained attention in numerous business publications and he began receiving inquires asking for his help from other businesses. This level of interest caused him to leave his position in industry and begin a consulting career in 1983.
  • John R. Ingold—also had extensive experience as a senior operating manager and successfully utilized a financially based gainsharing model in his division of a German owned company. In addition, John had also been a consultant for a respected Midwest firm prior to joining The Muller Group. John oversees the client assessment and design phases of Equishare™ projects. His 20+ years of consulting experience and project work with hundreds of companies, provides our clients with the level of comfort and expertise they expect and deserve. John obtained his under-graduate degree from Manchester College and a graduate degree from Purdue University.
  • Haywood G. May—Haywood’s experience with Equishare™ began when he was the president of a New England-based company involved in the marine industry. His company had four different profit centers under one roof, encompassing sales, service, production, and custom fabrication. His challenge of getting everyone pointed in the right direction for the benefit of over-all company results lead him to Equishare™. After spending ten plus years utilizing the system, Haywood joined The Muller Group in 1998. Haywood has been involved with over one hundred implementations of the Equishare™ System, and has trained thousands of managers, supervisors, and employees. In addition, he has served many of these clients in a post-implementation “coaching” role. His hands-on experience and wide range of client experiences enable him to provide clients with practical “get it done” advice and counsel. Haywood attended North Carolina State University and St. Andrews College, graduating with majors in Business and Economics.
