How I can help you

My professional experience is across various businesses in a variety of executive positions. I started out in the shoe industry, specializing in retail, wholesale, manufacturing, HR and operations for Brown Group INC, a US based shoe manufacturing company. I also spent two years abroad working for a privately owned shoe Manufacturer, ADOC, who owned 100 retail stores throughout S. America. My goal was to teach the buyers a system to purchase and manage all merchandise for the retail stores as well as importing goods to sell.  I then transitioned into the Healthcare industry at Cardinal Health. II lead a direct sales team,  in various states, to manage distribution, and sales of consumable products to hospitals. I had responsability for developing the strategy of my region, managing contracts, increasing operational efficiencies, developing relationships, and understanding the critical needs and wants of our customers to ensure growth and differentiation in the market place. I am a business generalist and can help develop your strategy, sales, operations, financials, human resources, and distribution of products.
