I help professionals & business owners RAISE THEIR GAME to the next level.
I believe everyone is capable of raising their game with the help of proven tools, systems and support. Based on that belief, my "why" is to collaborate with others to solve big, meaty challenges so that together we "raise our game" to accomplish meaningful results for success and fulfillment.
I am a practitioner of "grit", and believe in working for progress, not perfection. Let's collaborate to begin making meaningful progress today!
I provide broad business acumen refined over 35 years across a variety of industries, markets and roles, including running a business unit as an expatriate in Brazil. I have worked in businesses with revenues ranging from under $50 million to $5 billion. My impact results from having led numerous mission-critical and game-changing initiatives in highly competitive market spaces. I am noted for a deep collaborative approach that leverages best practices to deliver results. I practice empathy, curiosity, collaboration and active listening to uncover optimal solutions.
In addition to my international experience, I have had significant success leading development and commercialization of revenue-generating solutions that enable companies to achieve sustainable competitive advantage. By blending my analytical orientation, client focus, technical savvy with my extensive business experience and advanced academic credentials, I create immediate and lasting results for my clients.
I am also an independent small business owner, enhanced by the resources of FocalPoint International. The combination of my skills, experience and business acumen with the FocalPoint resources and network positions me to “teach others to fish” and help business leaders raise their game to the next level to get more of what they want out of their business and relationships.
I am a certified business coach, licensed property and casualty insurance agent, and have earned Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US), Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT), and Pragmatic Marketing (Level VI) certifications. I have BA and MBA degrees from Michigan State University, am married to my high school sweetheart and have two adult children in the early stages of their professional careers with global companies.
