He led the turnaround and integration of Wells-CTI, a break-even $22m microchip testing-equipment OEM. He architected and developed a custom planning platform to streamline production. The business exceeded 30% EBITDA margin within 10 months.

He later led the transformation of Dimensions, a $20m struggling power conversion business, which had been losing revenue over 5 years, into the largest industrial power conversion enterprise in the Americas. The business reached $47m in revenue and 27% EBITDA margin in 2014. It also secured customer commitments for new products, in total expanding the business to exceed $60m revenue and 30% EBITDA margin by 2016.

In 2017, as an independent sponsor, Boris raised $17m capital from Tuckerman Capital, 2SV Capital, and Regions Bank to acquire Rotating Solutions, a $10m solids control and waste management equipment manufacturer. Over the next two years, he built a fleet of six mobile rental centrifuges, grew revenue 29%, developed a new centrifuge design, and improved remanufacturing processes to extend machine life by over 30%.
