I help start-ups to billion dollar companies set strategy and create programs to meet market demands and stakeholder needs. I'm a business generalist with a background in scaling companies by recruiting the right team, setting the culture, creating processes to make things hum, and building financial footings for a successful company. I have many years of consulting to executive teams and corporate boards for all types of matters - particularly executive compensation and financial strategy -- along with working as an executive coach and as the active liaison to the Board's Compensation Committee in both public and private companies. I've worked with the legal community on a variety of litigation support projects and as a potential expert witness.
