I"m expert in startups and grow ing small businesses. I am happy working with for profit businesses or not for profit businesses [I’ve operated in and been on the boards of both].
I've also run a multinational Fortune 500 business.
I’ve been involved in several startups around the world including fish and meat distribution, over the counter medical diagnostics and a restaurant. The majority of my time was spent with Fortune 500 companies with profit and loss responsibility
My original skills were in sales and marketing with experience in cold calling [don’t do it] to long term relationship account management. My Fortune 500 experience with Ford, Mars and Pitney Bowes enabled me to work several continents with board positions in 20 different countries, including Japan. Ultimately I ran a $500M full function [manufacturing, engineering, finance, HR, product development, sales, service and marketing] operation from the USA for Pitney Bowes.
I enjoy rowing, travel and helping people. I have a Master of Arts from Cambridge University and a Diploma/M.Sc in Industrial Administration from Bradford University in the UK>
