How I can help you
I have been a businessman for over fifty years. I started as an accountant for a CPA firm. I created a restaurant chain with a college buddy that served beer, wine and liquor. I was a CEO of that chain that included franchises and had locations in Illinois, Colorado, California and Arizona. I was COO and a shareholder of a women's sportswear business that designed and manufactured garments for our own company and licensed stores worldwide. As a consultant, I worked on helping start ups, financial turn-a-rounds, financing (including public stock offerings and mergers), Currently, I am owner and CEO of a commercial printing business that I created. I will be retiring end of 2018 - My daughter will be taking over.
As a CEO,COO and consultant, I have fulfilled almost every aspect of what it takes to create, finance, start and run a business.
