How I can help you
As a founder and former president of one of the largest photography companies in the country, I have experience in both B2B and B2C marketing. During my career I managed a talented team of executives, software developers, vendors and entrepreneurs to develop proprietary workflows, innovative products and stream-lined distribution channels.
I can help you refine your vision, write a business plan, define your brand and develop your sales and marketing strategy. For example, I was able to create a sales process that empowered other sales people to carry my flag. I also understand county-level procurement and RFP preparation.
My other area of expertise is in small business sales & acquisitions. Specifically; valuation, process, transaction structure and the kinds of things which should be included in a purchase agreement. I am also a certified facilitator for Unlocking Potential, a non-profit coaching group run by Carly Fiorina.
As a company President for 32 years, I integrated the benefits of proprietary platforms with outsourced vendor solutions to deliver unique value to our clients. I also maintained marketplace agility to meet goals for growth and improved efficiency. I guided the company as it opened remote offices and can assist you in the fundamental concepts of how to scale up a business without you having to be always be “in the room”.
My company was ranked among the Top Small Business Workplaces in Washington by the Washington Post and eventually acquired by the leading retailer and manufacturing platform for personalized photographic products and communications.
I take a very holistic approach to growing a business. For example, I can assist you in growing capacity at a sustainable rate without compromising quality. Great business leaders understand the value of collaboration, empathy and humility. I try to embrace these characteristics by listening, questioning and collaborating in a way that empowers you to meet your personal and professional goals.
I look forward to working with you!
