How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in the manufacturing sector by applying my forty years of experience in business strategy, planning, operations, marketing, finance and accounting. I am prepared to help small businesses navigate through the complexities of startup or expansion of existing business.
 
As President/CEO and Chief Financial Officer of major companies in the military, law enforcement and outdoor industries, I have been responsible for achieving substantial bottom line results through skills in planning, goal setting, problem solving, financial and operational awareness and team building.
 
In addition to my business activities, I have served on the Board of Advisors of the Hartford, Connecticut Manufacturers Council, Board of Governors of the National Shooting Sports Foundation and member of the Connecticut and American Society of Certified Public Accountants. I was also the Founding President of the Tolland Foundation which supports activities for physically and mentally disabled individuals.
