How I can help you
As an experienced business executive with both global multinationals and VC backed start-ups, I can provide guidance on strategy, business and organizational development; with a focus on sales, marketing and market development.
Having run a mid-sized company and worked with or been a Board member for Venture Capital or Private Equity backed startup companies, I have a broad perspective on the variety of issues facing young businesses. And as a Business Leadership Consultant, I have helped strategic and financial investors evaluate young companies including Due Diligence work but, more importantly, aided young companies in positioning or repositioning their businesses for greater success.
