Why I Started if
Six years ago, after spending 35 years of my career in corporate finance, I decided the best way to put to use the vast knowledge and experience I had accumulated is to spread it around, helping as many companies as possible.
At several points in my career the pace was too slow and I found myself frustrated at the rate of growth and change that management was willing to call success. But there were also times when the pace was exhilarating (e.g. when I was an executive officer of a public company where we grew the market cap from $7 million to $1.3 billion, in just two years).
“My hope is that my 40 years of experience can serve as some else’s solid ground.”
Throughout my career I’ve sought out challenges (distressed situations, turnarounds, high growth). As a result, during those 35 years I was developing an “off-balance sheet” asset that has been growing in value with each new challenge. Since then, it has continued to grow as I’ve helped over 30 companies in the past six years.
In the same way I help clients uncover and maximize value, I decided the best way to leverage my value is by providing service on a fractional basis so as to help as many companies as possible.
I realize that running a business can feel like you’re constantly on shifting sands – never quite having a firm footing, and with things constantly moving beneath you. My hope is that my 40 years of experience can serve as some else’s solid ground, giving them confidence and piece of mind as they pursue their goals.
