How I can help you
I can help improve business performance in strategic planning, product / offering development, marketing, sales and operations. I have extensive experience in management consulting, software development and systems integration. As a mentor for SCORE, I am happy to work with all types of business and really enjoy working with entrepreneurs.
I am a retired management consultant with a long career focused primarily on helping large corporate clients implement new strategies, develop new software and adopt new technologies. I have helped many leading companies through all stages of large scale business transformations, from initial planning through design, development and implementation. I have extensive experience in Financial Services and Insurance. My leadership roles have spanned many aspects of running a business, including marketing, sales, operations, client service, strategic planning, new business ventures, product / offering development, recruiting, team building, mentoring staff, and corporate development. My experience in consulting helps me connect with SCORE clients, understand their business challenges and opportunities, and work with them to find solutions.
I also have experience as a Board Member and Managing Director in an angel investor group (Angel Investors Forum), where I had the opportunity to meet and work with many entrepreneurs. I may be able to help you determine whether pursuing some form of venture capital investment might be an attractive option for your business.
I have also enjoyed roles in youth development focused non-profits, including Our Piece of the Pie (board member and board chair) and Starbase (after school STEM program volunteer). I am a former Treasurer and current President on a non-profit board.
