How I can help you

My strengths are in Sales ( Manufacturers Representatives)  and Business Management & Operations.   Prior to retiring in 2003 I owned and operated an Independent Manufacturers Representative Firm from 1981-2003, selling primarily to appliance manufacturers and some automotive, including servicing the manufacturing facilities and working with their respective engineering departments. Before starting the Rep Firm I was a small town New Car Dealer from 1972-1981, which includes new and used car sales, leasing, part sales, car maintenance and body shop repair.
