How I can help you

  
I can provide a generalist's view of your product or service, assess your preparedness to launch or grow a company and assist by providing advice as to next steps and point toward the resources a company needs when beginning the journey of going into business -- or in building its business.
 

With over 30 years as an accomplished executive leader, I've guided North American divisions of multinational companies through the competitive consumer goods landscape while enhancing brand development, product innovation, process improvement, and operating efficiencies.

I've held key roles at a variety of consumer products companies including executive-level positions at 
RECARO Child Safety, LLC, Fisher-Price, Inc., Casio, Inc., and the Fundimensions division of General Mills Inc.

I currently work as a business consultant for Inveniam Capital Partners, an advisory firm and tech-enabled investment bank headquartered in New York. My office is in the Detroit area.  Having earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at Wayne State University with co-majors in Journalism and Marketing, and post-graduate work in Marketing at Wayne State and Finance at University of Michigan, I've built a successful track record of launching and turning around promising consumer product lines in both the mass distribution and specialty market spaces.
