Growth companies have to expand their finance, tax, treasury, and technology management at the same time as they handle the increased demands of customer service, sales and production.

Growth may also require expertise in mergers and acquisitions – from due diligence to post acquisition integration – and the banking relationships and the public, private and venture capital to fund the company’s expansion. I work with clients to meet these challenges and focus on helping them with:

  • Attracting Investment
  • Budget Forecasting
  • Business Plan Development
  • Cash Flow Modeling
  • Structuring & Planning International Expansion
  • Due Diligence for Investment & Reinvestment
  • Managing Banking Relationships
  • Manufacturing & Inventory Reporting
  • Securing Lines of Credit
  • Securing Private Investment
  • Strategic Planning

I am a highly experienced, successful senior financial executive and CPA with substantial experience in finance, tax, treasury, and technology management. I work with my clients to better understand their existing business and to be able look forward to identify future opportunities. I have worked with publicly financed, private equity backed and venture capital financed companies to maximize their revenue and profitability, including:

  • Led the evaluation, negotiation and financing of the $1.2 billion acquisition of a NYSE real estate investment trust
  • Developed and delivered presentations to Standard & Poor's and Moody's to rate debt
  • Designed and executed cost reduction plan that successfully reduced monthly cash burn in excess of 60% for a manufacturing company's North American operations
  • Structured and managed the implementation of a captive insurance subsidiary to self insure workers' compensation for 6,000 employees
  • Led the evaluation, negotiation and financing of a $1.2 billion acquisition of a NYSE real estate investment trust
  • Led the corporate and operational finance teams and information technology department through business expansion from 3 to more than 20 countries worldwide

My specialties are:

  • Financial Management
  • Global Tax Planning, Compliance & Structuring
  • Growth Management
  • Mergers, Acquisitions & Divestitures
  • New Business Opportunity Analysis
  • Raising Capital
  • Standard & Poor's and Moody's Debt Ratings

I joined the Florida CFO Group in 2014. I have over 30 years of financial, operating, and general management experience including structuring and negotiating public and private financings, mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. These financings and transactions ranged in size from $5 million to over $1 billion. I am highly qualified in leading finance, accounting, tax and technology teams in financial analysis, budgeting, treasury, accounting, internal and external financial reporting (SEC), and technology development and deployment. I earned a BA in accounting from Bentley University and sit on the board of directors of UMB Bank Arizona (since 2005).
