Dedicated Leader

What I love most about my job is leading people and inspiring confidence in their abilities. I'm committed to excellence and I'm passionate about quality service. Throughout my career, I have managed Distribution ($36 million), Manufacturing ($140 million), Health Insurance ($1.3 billion), and Financial Services ($25 million) businesses. These assignments required development and implementation of business strategies leading to turnarounds at four companies, and record growth in sales and profitability at three companies while managing cultural change and upgrading personnel.

Goal Oriented 

I'm confident, committed, and have a relentless work ethic. Additionally, I have a very optimistic and forward looking view in my professional and personal lives. I'm especially exceptional in strategic thinking, meeting performance goals and short and long term planning. When I set my mind to something I effectively organize, assemble and arrange resources to meet those goals. In my career, I have successfully restructured three companies leading to record growth and profitability, and refinanced one company through Brazilian Export Financing arrangements resulting in 70% lower borrowing costs.

Strategic Thinker

Developing strategic solutions to problems comes naturally to me. In my career, I have demonstrated consistently distinguished performances in leading 

turnaround situations at four companies that required terminating incompetent management while investing in new facilities and upgrading personnel. Sales and profitability grew to record levels at three of these businesses through new product introductions, strategic market expansion, global sourcing, and export financing arrangements. 

About Me

Dedicated family man and native southern Californian who enjoys the state's beautiful beaches, Sierra Nevada mountains, and desert areas near Palm Springs. After graduating from the University of Michigan with an MBA, I began my business career with General Electric in New York progressing up the financial route to become a Division CFO. For over 25 years, I have held Executive Management positions in finance and general management in four different business segments (manufacturing, distribution, oilfield services, and health insurance). Throughout my career, I have developed a reputation for being passionate about providing quality service, exhibiting a relentless work ethic and a commitment to excellence. Confident in my abilities and proud of my achievements, I am looking for a position that will allow me to make a positive contribution to the organization's success
