How I can help you

I have broad, diverse and current experience in most aspects of starting, running and selling a business. I currently own a 50-person instrument manufacturing company operating world-wide, managing successfully in rapidly changing technology and product markets. As President, CEO, and owner, I have managed more than a dozen growth companies, large and small, public and private, in markets for technical facilities, systems, services and products. Some of these businesses have operated in high-risk and highly regulated environments.These businesses provided strategic consulting, planning, product development, engineering, operations, project  management and product manufacturing. I have also been a principal in more than 25 acquisitions and divestitures of technology companies. I have had first hand experience operating a home-based business and expanding it nationally. I have been a SCORE Counselor for 7 years.
