How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in marketing, operations, and finance.

As a banker, management consultant, entrepreneur, and professor, I have helped countless small businesses in the areas of marketing, operations, and finance. In my professional practice I provide financial management support, business development assistance, and marketing expertise to banks, businesses, universities, municipalities, government agencies, and service organizations. 

In addition to my professional activities, I’m also a business faculty member at Arkansas State University-Newport where I instruct human resources, entrepreneurship, and economics courses. I hold a deep sense of community and have served both public and private organizations in roles such as vice chairman of finance for the Little Rock Zoo Commission, founding president of the Maumelle, Arkansas Chamber of Commerce and the boards of the Downtown Little Rock Partnership, the Little Rock Southside Main Street Project, and the Wade Knox Children's Advocacy Center. I’ve also served on key committees of several Arkansas economic development organizations. 

As a mentor for SCORE, I have provided advice to hundreds of entrepreneurs. Let’s get started.
