My career has spanned four decades in various aspects of financial services.  It began with a 15 year career at Citicorp, most of which was in the equipment finance business where I touched all aspects of the business, from credit management to sales to sales management.  From there I entered the personal finance and investment industry where I held a number of senior level positions in the marketing, sales and product development areas of companies like Royal Alliance Associates (one of the country’s largest independent securities Broker/Dealer), AXA Advisors (a financial products distribution company and subsidiary of AXA Equitable) and OppenheimerFunds (a leading money manager and investment products distributor).  After my successful corporate career I formed The High Tide Group LLC, a business consulting practice that mainly assists small businesses in planning and marketing.
