Began post undergraduate as a Department store buyer for Joseph Horne Co. in Pittsburgh, PA. in 1970.

Moved to State College PA in 1975 as a Pharmaceutical Rep for Pfizer Inc., covering 5 counties in Central PA. During that time, I became a financial partner in Zimms family Restaurants. I left Pfizer in 1984 to become full time Vice President for Operations/Managimg Partner of Zimms.  I sold the restaurant partnership and became Publications Manager of a startup metroplititan magazine (State College magazine) and Account manager for Snavely, Vidmar and Associates in 1986, where I managed the magazine and advertising accounts. THe magazine was sold successfully in 1990.  I departed Snavely/Vidmar  in 1991 to take an emergency short term position as Director of Marketing and Development for the struggling Youth Education in the Arts in Bergen County, NJ, a non profit organization of which I had been recently named Board Chairman. After stabilizing that organization, I returned to State College  in 1994 to join the Development staff at Penn State as Director of Station Development for Public Broadcasting. In a short time, I was promoted to Director of Marketing and Development of Penn State Public Broadcasting and later served as interim General Manager /CEO. When the CEO position was filled by national search, I was promoted to Director of Outreach Development, where I served under the Vice President for Outreach for three years. I left Penn State in 2002 and became Development and Governance consultant to Youth Education in the Arts, who were losing their NJ support. I was responsible for moving the operation to Allentown, PA, by securing the gift of a building and commitments of support from the city of Allentown. Over the course of my several involvements with Youth Education in the Arts, annual giving grew from $100,000 per year to over $500,000 per year.

My wife and I purchased and renovated the failing Springfield House Bed and Breakfast in Boalsburg, PA in 2005, reopening it as a successful boutique hotel modeled Inn. In 2007, we added a retail chocolate shop at that facility, which has been equally successful.

I served as Vice President for Development of The Second Mile, a statewide youth service nonprofit for 2 years in 2007-2008, where I planned and implemented a capital campaign responsible for raising $6,0000,000 toward the construction of a camp facility in State College, PA.

I returned to Youth Education in the Arts (YEA!) in 2011 as Director of Operations/COO to assist in planning and implementing their growth from a single drum and bugle corps  into a multi program marching music organization. Today, YEA! operates 5 local or nationally touring performing ensembles, local dance ensembles and the largest marching band organization in the world, serving over 800 high school marching bands and operating over 150 events each year. I retired from YEA! in 2014, but still serve in a pro bono consultant capacity to YEA! and several other non profit organizations, primarily in the fields of youth/music.

Chapter: Cape Cod SCORE

I have extensive experience in all aspects of finance and banking relationships, as well as in business acquisitions and sales, and in crafting business plans.  I am also very knowledgeable in accounting.  I was a chief financial officer of a public company for 11 years, an investment banker for 15 years, and also practiced commercial law for 5 years.  I have been an investor in small businesses and am familiar with the issues frequently arising in creating businesses and managing growth.  I have also advised non-profit entities and businesses seeking to provide services to non-profits.

I was an associate attorney with Kelley Drye & Warren, a New York City based law firm, from 1977 to 1982, including one year in Tokyo, Japan.  I was involved in the general commercial practice, including banking, finance, real estate finance, corporate acquisitions and advising non-profit entities.

I was an Investment banker with Lepercq, de Neuflize & Co., an international money management and investment banking firm, from 1982 to 1995.  During this time, I concentrated in real estate finance, including hospitality and senior housing assets, as well as private equity investments and corporate acquisitions.

I was the Chief Financial Officer and a member of Board of Directors of Six Flags, Inc. and predecessor entities, from 1995 to 2006.  I was a key participant in the growth of the company from a private enterprise with three assets to a publicly owned company with assets throughout United States and Europe.  I was responsible for all financial activities, including bank and other financings and relationships, budgeting, planning, and accounting, as well as other matters such as insurance and human resources.

I have been a private investor since 2006, investing in small to medium sized businesses seeking growth capital.

I have also served as director of two other public companies and two private enterprises, and as advisor to several start-up companies.
