How I can help you
I have been a SCORE Mentor / Consultant for more than six years. In 2015 I was named "Co-Mentor of the year" for the Los Angeles Chapter. At SCORE I provide assistance to my clients in many areas of business. They included; Start-Ups, Accounting, Finance, Logistics, Business and Financial Plans, Inventory Control,, and Human Resources. I am currently working with a long-term client as their Advisory Board Member.
My business experience includes twenty years as a Business Project Manager and Consultant to companies ranged in size from $5.0 to $170,0 million in sales. I restructured their business Organization, Project Estimating, Logistics, Purchasing, Budgeting, Credit / Collections, and Accounting. I have also installed several Quick Books systems. In Human Resources I prepared Job Descriptions, reviewed and improved the companies' Insurance, Workers Compensation, and Safety Programs.
As a Project Manager I started a $28 million computer peripheral Import and Distribution Company as a subsidiary of a major Japanese trading company. I implemented all the computer hardware and software, accounting systems, the Company Policies, Operating Procedures, and hired the initial staff. After start up I was assigned as the VP - Operations and Customer Support. Moved support sales and profits to $6.0 million, with a 50% Net Profit margin within four years.
I have also been the Vice President of Finance. as well as the Regional, Group, and Divisional Controller for major national food processing, distribution, manufacturing and construction companies. I was responsible for all aspects of the companies' Financial Management - Management; Accounting, Payroll, Credit, Collections, Accounts Payable, Computer Management, and Budgeting. However, in order to perform my function effectively, it required me to become knowledgeable in manufacturing, logistics, quality control, sales, and marketing.
