How I can help you

I can help you with many aspects of running a business. I can also help with topics regarding consumer technology markets such as audio and video. Currently I am chief executive officer of HJS Markets LLC. With significant international experience in both Fortune 500 and entrepreneurial environments, I have worked in a number of functional areas including business planning, global strategic marketing, digital marketing, analytics, research, lead generation, branding, promotion, customer support, and web architecture. Previously, I served as senior vice president of global web strategy and development at Harman International (NYSE: HAR). I was a member of the Board of Industry Leaders of the Consumer Technology Association, and also chaired its research committee and served on three of its divisional boards. Earlier, with Bose Corporation I served in national sales and marketing management roles, and also consulted to Pioneer Electronics on the introduction of laser disc technology. I served on the advisory board at eBay. I also managed Mirage Acoustics, a Canadian startup with mid-priced audio loudspeakers, where I was a key player in generating multi-million dollar sales in the U.S. market. I have received numerous product awards including Best Home Theater System under $2,500 from Video Review Magazine, Best Product of the Year from Business Week Magazine, and Audio Product of the Year from CD Magazine.
