How I can help you

I attended undergraduate school on an NROTC scholarship and entered the Navy immediately after college.  I was in the nuclear submarine program from 1963 until 1970 serving on the USS Triton (SSN-586).I also taught nuclear power technology and inertial navigation.  Upon leaving active duty, I started working for Westinghouse Electric Corporation in the nuclear power business unit.  Over 25 years i progressed through a series of professional and managerial positions.  Highlights include managing the multimillion dollar nuclear training division and creating a joint venture for nuclear power plant instrumentation in Ukraine which still operates today. 

Upon leaving Westinghouse in 1994, I started a business and personnel management consulting business which I ran for seven years.  After retirement from consulting, my wife and I purchased a tourism lodging business in Alaska which we still operate today.

Volunteer activities include President of the Alaska B&B Association, member of the Alaska Tourism Association Board of Directors, parish lay leader.

How I can help you

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.
