How I can help you
I can help you with business strategy, business plan development, cash flow modeling, market and feasibility analysis, debt and equity financing, initial public offerings, mergers, acquisitions, and valuation methodologies.
I currently work as a business consultant and am also an entrepreneur. I co-founded several start-ups in various segments including semiconductor, electrical engineering, intellectual property, pork production, and marketing segments. I also co-founded an electronic bar code company which developed the airline passenger boarding-pass application. As a business consultant, I have worked in the real estate, power generation, ethanol and consumer products industries with a focus on business strategy, business development, capital formation, operations and financial management.
As a co-founder, corporate executive and business consultant, I directed the operations and financial management in large institutional and start-up organizations. I served as president of a real estate management company, the chief operations manager to multiple publicly traded investment funds, a managing director to an international consulting company, investment committee member, corporate development manager to multiple start-up technology companies and founder of an Internet-based services company. I participated in the private placement of $10+ billion in new investments and have been involved with 300+ takeovers, workouts, and asset repositioning and disposition which included one reverse public merger.
As president of a national management operation, I maintained bottom line accountability for the management of a national business unit while providing investment, underwriting, operational and financial management services to domestic and international clients. I served as one of six committee members responsible for the private placement of $10+ billion in new investments and my group developed business strategies for failing and underperforming transactions. Concurrent with these responsibilities, I served as the chief operating officer to multiple publicly traded investment companies where I participated in the creation, marketing, IPO, management and reverse merger liquidation at the end of their life cycle. I also served as the managing director of our NY based consulting company.
I currently mentor students at the Maharishi University of Management in their Concept to Market Institute and serve as a board member with the Institute.
I look forward to learning about your business ideas or business needs and working with you to chart a path forward.
