Brief Career History
An entrepreneur since graduating from St. Louis University, I started my own manufacturing company when I was 24-years old. As a business geek, I developed the start-up into a highly successful market leader in a high-volume, low-margin industry. After 28 years, I sold the business having achieved tremendous success. But…the sale of the business did not go as I had always envisioned. I founded Metro Business Advisors to guide fellow business owners through their once in a lifetime event by sharing my experience in building, growing, managing and successfully exiting my business.
Brief description of why your skills, knowledge, and experiences add value to the position you hold. What special value can you bring to your current position?
As a former business owner, I understand the demands of ownership the passion to succeed, the commitment to the business and community, and the drive to maximize business value. My goal is to remind owners to build value and run their businesses as if they were going to sell tomorrow, rather than waiting until they feel ready to leave the business.
