  • IT Leadership

As a C-level operations leader with 20+ years’ experience in driving large start-up projects, turnarounds, and transformation initiatives, I have a proven record of leadership and performance. Colleagues appreciate my ability to formulate and communicate the vision for each venture. My background is in financial services, directing departmental transformation and leading entrepreneurial start-ups. I have led numerous multi-million dollar turn around projects.

My career started as an Officer in the U.S. Army, then progressed to banking at JPMChase for 19 years. In 1998 I launched my own management consulting firm, providing customized venture leadership solutions for clients coast to coast. My effective servant leadership style has maximized project success while motivating and inspiring work teams.
