Business Career

While working in the business world over my career in the global automotive aftermarket industry, I’ve held a number of “C” level executive roles. I’ve sat on boards of companies and organizations. I’ve been an advisor to companies and executives, and currently work as a consultant.

My business experience ranges from managing my own company, ultimately merging it with a division of a Fortune 200 public company. I’ve held executive and board positions in private, public, and non-profit organizations, including Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Director in the United States, Canada, Brazil, and the United Kingdom. I have been involved with various companies, including start-ups, new market entries, leveraged buy-outs, private equity, and regional, national, and international retail and wholesale automotive after-market platforms.

I have considerable hands-on experience in mergers and acquisitions, integrations, new market entry strategies, operations, sales, marketing, distribution, purchasing, and finance (simultaneously holding the chief financial officer and chief executive officer for a national retail platform). I have mentored many direct reports which have moved into executive positions for both national and international organizations.

I have helped organizations achieve exceptional sales and profit growth, adept in strategic planning, and known as an industry innovator during my career.


My services include advisory roles to senior executives, comprehensive consultation to help identify gaps and opportunities, and appointments as a director on corporate or non-profit boards. I will help you, your team, and your company achieves the success that you seek.
