How I Can Help You

Let's Turn Your Business Dream into Reality Together
What I Bring to the Table for You:
- Business Strategy Development: I’ll work with you to create a solid business strategy, lay it out in a detailed business plan, and develop a financial forecast to guide your new start-up to success.
- Step-by-Step Guidance: From creating your legal entity to documenting your plan to implementing your strategies, I’ll walk with you through each step to bring your new business dream to life.
My Experience:
With a 37-year career in various pivotal roles such as an engineer, a business analyst, Operations Controller, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Strategy Officer, and General Manager, I’ve been at the decision-making table for over 500 strategic and business plans. My expertise spans across:
- Business Strategy and Planning: Crafting and evaluating strategic plans to drive business success.
- Operations and Finance: Navigating through the financial and operational aspects of businesses to ensure stability and growth.
- Product Development and Supply Chain Management: Ensuring products are developed efficiently and reach customers smoothly.
My Journey with SCORE:
For the past 14 years, I've continued to share my knowledge and experience with over 700 SCORE clients, assisting them in various areas of business strategy, planning, and execution.
Contributions Beyond Business:
My journey has also led me to serve on several Not-For-Profit boards, volunteering my expertise to organizations focused on education, environment, elder care, historic preservation, and local government. I’ve even stepped into the political arena, serving as an elected town councilman and as chairman of my local SCORE chapter.
A Bit About My Personal Life:
Now, splitting my time between Pennsylvania and Florida, I enjoy activities like fishing and gardening, quality moments with my grandsons, and continuing to assist new entrepreneurs in launching their successful ventures - both profit and non-profit.
Let’s Connect:
If you’re ready to take your business idea from dream to reality, I’m here to assist, guide, and encourage you on every step of the way.
