How I can help you
I can help offer advice in the following areas- Business Planning,Buying/Purchasing, Sales, Operations, Merchandising, Product Development Licensing. Over the past 25+ years I have worked in various aspects of Wholesale Manufacturing, Retail Buying and Apparel Product Development. In my last postion for 14 years, I was EVP of Sales, Merchandising and Strategy for a NY Based Apparel Company. Our business was with many large corporations as well as small specialty and large retail chains, both on price and off price. Ive developed business plans, built both internal and external sales teams and profitability surveys for prospective ventures within my areas of responsibility. Licensing is also a strong area of experience I can assist in. Prior to this, I worked as a Buyer for TJX companies and Ames Department Stores. I am married for 28 years, have two sons, one attending Tufts University in Boston, and the other here at NC State. We recently moved to the NC area to slow down, give back, volunteer and "attempt" golf.
