Career Overview

My skills and experience are well developed to oversee the day-to- day tactical issues of a company. As an Interim Executive, I function as a part of the overall leadership in analyzing, creating, developing and implementing the appropriate vision and long-term strategy for the company. My extensive career experience has developed many comprehensive skill-sets in finance, accounting, leadership, logistics, operations and problem solving. I am particularly well versed in working with privately held businesses that can benefit from a multi-faceted executive. My insight, objectivity, and knowledge from 44 years in business have benefited a large number of organizations in many various industries.
