Education

 

Ron attended the University of San Francisco in California, for his undergrad in business administration while in the military (USMC). Ron has always been entrepreneurial by nature and had several business of his own before starting his consulting career. While running his own security company with 60 plus employees Ron went to school at night at New Hampshire College to attain his MBA. In 1992 he sold the Security Company and went full time into consulting, first with Authur Andersen, then American Management Services.  In 1995 Ron opened a 10 man consulting firm, North Star Small Business Strategies Inc. which grew rapidly and specialized in all types of industries from start up to 50 Million in revenue. After Five years it was time to slim down and concentrate the practice to a more specialized and hands on service for his clientele. In 2000 Ron revamped his practice to more align with his passion thus ECS was born.

Ron and his wife of 25 years Mary collaborate often in support of those who cannot help themselves and spend a fair amount of time traveling in that pursuit.
