Chapter: St Paul SCORE

Sales/Marketing exec as background whose focus, since management position #2 at P&G, has been restarts and start-ups throughout the career. This includes being in the "executive suite" of leadership for 30+ years (including being President). The most recent two years (ending the close of Q1 of 2014) has been consulting projects, essentially limiting myself to two weeks per month. Both projects (successful) were in the aging-in-place/healthcare technology/systems segments and considered "next generation" solutions. I still take periodic consulting phone discussions (usually conference calls) with major worldwide investment banking and analytics projects companies like McKinsey and Goldman Sachs (and their competitors).
