How I can help you

My goal is to better position a business for success through marketing, branding, new products and overall business strategy (including business plan and value proposition).   I have worked for leading companies in the US - P&G, Reynolds/ Alcoa, Capital One - and have spent the last 10 years working on small businesses through local Richmond business consulting and through my work in the Capital One Small Business Division.

I have learned that every business opportunity and business owner is unique and I enjoy working with people to make a difference in the community.  My approach is to help you understand/ select your target customers exceedingly well and to position your products and services to uniquely resonate with your customers.  I have extensive experience in branding – Reynolds Wrap was the #1 brand in the US while under my direction – and can work with you to develop the right marketing plan for new or existing businesses.  

I look forward to working with business owners to develop the right business plan that meets the goals for your business and your life.
