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.

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.
