Business

I am a retired Corporate Finance and Operating Executive with over 40 years of experience. In addition, I have taught at the MBA level in the past. I am very well suited to help anyone with any business subject.

Recently I was the Senior Vice President of Operations and CFO for a very large not for profit and previously have been CFO for a number of public companies, President and COO for a large division of the Xerox Corporation and senior executive in a number of start-ups, turnarounds, IPOs, etc.

I am happy to send you more details about my background as well as my detailed career resume.

Now I am retired and enjoy helping students who need help in any arena of the business world where I have many years and varied experiences and expertise.

Please let me know if you need anything else at this time.
