How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in strategic planning, product / offering development, marketing, sales and operations.  I have extensive experience in management consulting, software development and systems integration. As a mentor for SCORE, I am happy to work with all types of business and really enjoy working with entrepreneurs.

I am a semi-retired management consultant with a long career focused primarily on helping large corporate clients develop new software and adopt new technologies.  As a Partner at Accenture, I helped many leading companies through all stages of large scale business transformations, from initial planning through design, development and implementation.  I have extensive experience in Financial Services and Insurance.  My leadership roles at Accenture and as a VP at Cognizant spanned many aspects of our businesses, including client service, strategic planning, internal business venture creation, product / offering development, marketing, sales, operations, recruiting, team building, and corporate development.

I also have experience as a Board Member and Managing Director in an angel investor group (Angel Investors Forum), where I had the opportunity to meet and work with many entrepreneurs.  I may be able to help you determine whether pursuing some form of venture capital investment might be an attractive option for your business.

I’ve also enjoyed roles in youth development focused non-profits, including Our Piece of the Pie (board member and board chair) and Starbase (after school STEM program volunteer).  I am currently the Treasurer on a non-profit board.
