How I can help you

I have led organizations in numerous industries that serve a very wide variety of markets and that range in size from start up to very mature (+$250 million of annual revenues.)  I've been in about every aspect of B2B and in many B2C businesses.  I have conducted due diligence and have seen (and shared) many circumstances in which I told the "emperor that she/he is not wearing any clothes."  Those that have depended upon me have done so because there was a need for change and meaningful improvement.  I am a very hands on person and have made "cold call" sales as well as sold to senior executives of multi-billion operations.  I am not afraid to hear the word "no" but invest a lot of time beforehand thinking about the environment, the other party, etc. so that I (hopefully) minimize those answers.  I have bought and sold businesses.  I guess you can say that I have a bit of a "mongrel / mutt" business background, but like most "mutts", I am happy and will give you the attention that you want.  

I believe that my strengths lie in that I am very analytical but creative as to how to solve problems.  I love business, the cultures that exist, employee and customer challenges, etc.  Mostly I like to succeed!
