Working side by side with great innovators and executive leaders has shaped my approach to business. The common thread to success was true dedication to execution and the sheer ‘grit’ it takes to get it right. These commodities are in short supply across both young and mature businesses today.
Distraction is everywhere but execution and focus are the key common elements that allowed me to build great teams, win big sales and create value for all stakeholders from liquidity events at above market multiples.
My background has been as a transformative leader, taking on tough challenges. I have scaled and sold companies, created start-ups and worked within large corporate enterprises. As the former CEO for a fast growth public company and then senior executive with a Fortune 200 (Next Era), where I built an entrepreneurial business, I learned from hard fought wins and losses how to scale, develop high performance organizations and deliver consistent P&L results.
