How I can help you
I can help you improve business performance in customer support, finance, operations, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, distribution and human resources. I can help your business build and execute a strategic plan or start up plan, improve operations processes and profitability, analyze financial statements to determine the health of the business and opportunities to improve it and carry out effective product development, marketing and growth plans.
I have served as the chief executive officer of five companies ranging from $5 - $150 million in annual sales. I have also co-founded companies in the US and Europe, most recently a digital media company in California. For the past 8 years, I have led the operations of the digital media company and helped raise more than $22 million. I also implemented Netsuite, a cloud ERP, and developed the systems required to report royalties to content owners.
I also have extensive experience as a senior finance and operations executive in the entertainment and consumer goods industries. I led the implementation of several ERP systems (SAP, Dynamics-AX, Netsuite), as well as developed reporting and consolidation systems. Acting COO for a toy company, I implemented Dynamics-AX, which allowed for a streamlined supply chain from Asia to the United States and Europe. I also led the acquisition of an Ohio toy manufacturer with manufacturing facilities in Ohio and Poland.
