My career has been spent in various forms of marketing, organizational leadership, education, and consulting. Born and raised in the Washington, DC area, I grew up a creative and motivated entrepreneur and launched and sold several successful companies. I’ve watched and led significant growth in companies, colleges and universities, and non-profits for more than 25 years.
I have served as Chairman and CEO of an international marketing firm, a college and university executive, and a non-profit executive. Today my work is all about coaching leaders and teams through leadership challenges, vision development, strategic planning, process development, and life and work balance.
I am often requested to keynote at conferences, events, businesses, and on university campuses all on a variety of topics, including Personal and Business Planning, Vision, Team Leadership, Organizational Growth, and Marketing.
My diverse experience gives my private clients the advantage of working with a high-performer in leader development, coaching, and organization strategies. To date, my clients have grown their organizations by more than $2 billion and have experienced dramatic improvements in relationships and fulfillment in their work.
I work every day to help busy people excel in life and work.
