Joined a "Big Eight" accounting firm out of college. Following a two-year military service, I joined a global manufacturer of communications equipment, in their Finance department, later moving from Chicago to the New York City area on a promotion. Most of my career was spent in Finance up to Division Controller. This included accounting, credit/collections, billing, asset management, large customer contract negotiations and small business subcontract partner support. Subsequent, I moved into Quality and served as a Field Quality Director for the distribution arm of the company. My focused responsibility was the sustaining of the customer relationship. This included oversight of our relationship with our alternate sales channel partners and servicer providers. Additional experiences include strategic long range planning, Digital Six Sigma techniques, and media relations.
