I can help you with franchised and non-franchised businesses, buying/selling businesses, as well as a host of finance/administration functions.
My previous roles as a President and CEO included directing all administrative and operational functions of a business including accounting, budgets, cash flow, recruitment, training, leases, insurance, environmental issues and bankruptcy. I have also practiced as a Certified Public Accountant.
For the majority of my career I helped grow my family's dry cleaning business to 40 locations in two states. Through the years the range of activity was wide and included securing and/or selling new locations, permits, specialized training, large equipment purchases and maintenance, and chemical usage.
My first entrepreneurial venture was during my college years when introduced to the sport of Hang Gliding. I founded Free Flight Fresno to provide instruction and manufacture hang gliders in Fresno, CA.
