How I can help you

I have been a SCORE Mentor / Consultant for more than six years. In 2015 I was named "Co-Mentor of the year" for the Los Angeles Chapter. At SCORE I provide assistance to my clients in many areas of business.  They included; Start-Ups, Accounting, Finance, Logistics, Business and Financial Plans, Inventory Control,, and Human Resources. I am currently working with a long-term client as their Advisory Board Member.  

My business experience includes twenty years as a Business Project Manager and Consultant to companies ranged in size from $5.0 to $170,0 million in sales. I restructured their business Organization, Project Estimating, Logistics, Purchasing, Budgeting, Credit / Collections, and Accounting.  I have also installed several Quick Books systems.  In Human Resources I prepared Job Descriptions, reviewed and improved the companies' Insurance, Workers Compensation, and Safety Programs.

As a Project Manager I started a $28 million computer peripheral Import and Distribution Company as a subsidiary of a major Japanese trading company.  I implemented all the computer hardware and software, accounting systems, the Company Policies, Operating Procedures, and hired the initial staff.  After start up I was assigned as the VP - Operations and Customer Support. Moved support sales and profits to $6.0 million, with a 50% Net Profit margin within four years.

I have also been the Vice President of Finance. as well as the Regional, Group, and Divisional Controller for major national food processing, distribution, manufacturing and construction companies.  I was responsible for all aspects of the companies' Financial Management - Management; Accounting, Payroll, Credit, Collections, Accounts Payable, Computer Management, and Budgeting.  However, in order to perform my function effectively, it required me to become knowledgeable in manufacturing, logistics, quality control, sales, and marketing.

I am a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and have worked for two major U.S. Company's in their National and International Corporate staffs.
