How I can help you

I can help you start a business and assist existing businesses in: marketing sales, general management, planning, product development, patents licensing, and buying or selling businesses. I mentor anytime by email, phone and video and in-person by arrangement. I find video mentoring effective very convenitnt. During my career, I led private public mid-size, multi-site domestic and international manufacturing and construction companies. I gained broad general management experience as a senior officer serving a variety of industries markets. In marketing sales I directed activities for proprietary and commodity products serving automotive, architectural, consumer, industrial, international and defense markets; directed product development of industrial and consumer products and opened and expanded international markets using partnerships, licensing and company owned operations. In operations I implemented planning, continuous improvement, objective setting, quality management systems and team development processes. I also negotiated acquisitions, divestitures, formation of Joint Ventures and expanded, moved, closed and built plants with proprietary processes and equipment.
