I specialize in helping business leaders uncover opportunities, navigate the financial and operational complexities of decision-making, achieve results that really matter, and overall increase the business’ value.
It’s all about exploiting business opportunities. But not at any cost – I use my analytical skills, forward thinking, and creative nature to provide the focus and insights that achieve results that are important to that organization.
Simply put, I build and manage strategic initiatives that improve everyone’s profitability.
‘Dirt Under Fingernails’
I’ve never been afraid of pushing myself. In fact, I thrive on it.
Since my first year at Duke University’s Business School, I’ve been working on projects that require me to stretch my thinking beyond convention. It’s these critical-thinking and creative problem-solving skills that allow me to help organizations fulfill their potential.
With a successful track record (which includes a seven-year career at Showtime Networks as a Vice President and Director in corporate development roles) my true talents lie in developing neat, easily understood playbooks that allow one to reach a desired objective in a complex, uncertain environment. Cutting across both the finance and strategy functions, my work at Fortune 500 companies such as AlliedSignal and Viacom, has resulted in over $500 million of initiatives.
Having completed over 10 Centuries (100 mile bicycle ride) I have a proven track record of accomplishing stretch goals. I tend to maintains a can-do attitude in every aspect of my life because h knows that focusing on the right thing with the right assets pays off.
