I have 40 years of experience working in banking and manufacturing. I have been a commercial lender, CFO, General Manager and President for a manufacturer selling a proprietary product globally. I am a generalist having had engineering, purchasing and manufacturing reporting to me along with sales and admin.

I have also served on non profit and Industry Assn boards for many years but my best job was the manufacturer where I helped grow it from 9 million to almost 100 million in sales. As the general manager I was very involved in all the nitty gritty aspects of running the business.

In my first career as a banker I worked with hundreds of small businesses and I loved seeing the many different ways to make some money. I hope my experiences will add value to SCORE clients and I will continue to be amazed at the new businesses that are cropping up. I look forward to working with you.
