My extensive entrepreneurial career will help me improve sales, marketing, product development and leadership. I have counseled over 80 companies in the past six years.
After leaving the Navy, I joined IBM in Manhattan as a sales rep. After IBM, my career was decidedly entrepreneurial. I played a pioneering role in three transformative emerging markets. The first was electronic banking where I found myself in the right place at the right time and sold the first ATM in the world. In the mid 80's I was an executive for a company whose existence was a response to the breakup of AT&T (Ma Bell) - providing companies the software required to control their communications network which had previously been Ma Bell's function. The third market was the emergence of electronic banking and bill paying. I was EVP of one of the most successful providers of systems implementing banking and payments from home computers. i wrote a book entitled "Internet banking strategies for Community Banks and Credit Unions", published by an Alex Sheshunoff company.
I am currently coaching start-ups and growing companies and have worked with over 80 companies nation-wide.
I earned a B.A. with majors in mathematics and political science. I was an officer in the US Navy.
