How I Can Help You

In order to be helpful to you, I have extensive experience in creative problem solving, strategic business development, marketing, sales and new ventures. In addition, I have a strong working knowledge in finance and operations. During my career I have successfully and dynamically grown multiple businesses across several different industries.Most recently I started a Non-Emergency Medical Transport business from inception with no external funding and no sales to successfully selling the million dollar plus business with a high profit margin and 20 employees in just 5 years. Prior to this I worked with Procter & Gamble on their Iams/Eukanuba Pet Foods, Pampers/Luvs Diapers, Folgers/Millstone Coffees, Pringles Potato Chips and other brands with major retailers to expand the business for both the brands and retailers via leveraging shopper behavior learnings. As the worldwide Executive Vice President of Sale and Marketing for Marietta Corporation I led the turn around of this personal care business servicing the Hospitality Industry by expanding the distributor network and securing license agreements with Major Lodging chains worldwide. I worked in Marketing , New Ventures and Partnerships in children's products with Fisher Price Toys and Western Publishing (Little Golden Books). It is this varied experience across businesses that allows me to quickly understand the opportunities/challenges, means of developing innovative approaches and utilizing my passion/drive in helping you during discussions to realize your vision.
