How I can help you

Advising entrepreneurs in selling and buying small businesses. Business development through M&A as well as organic growth strategies.  Extensive career as a corporate executive and entrepreneur. Progressing through technical, marketing and general management positions in several publicly held companies, my corporate career culminated as President of a major subsidiary of a NYSE-listed corporation. My experience included instrumentation, process control and industrial automation, computer peripherals, electrical products and power supplies. Leaving the corporate world, I acquired and operated a manufacturer of custom transformers for over a decade, until selling its operating assets and focusing on software development for manufacturing applications.
