Leveraging my deep financial and operational experience, I look forward to partnering with small businesses to improve profitability and cash flow and therefore the value of their business.
I earned my Bachelor of Business Administration (Accounting) at Hofstra University.
Previously, I held executive financial positions at mid-to-large-sized companies including:
Barry Brover and I collaborated for more than 20 years. Brover's strengths include his keen attention to detail and his ability to provide unique perspectives, both of which contributed to the enhancement of profits. Moreover, he was known for being easy to understand and work with, fostering effective communication and a productive working relationship.
Barry is one of the most thoughtful, easily approachable, and astute senior managers that I have ever worked with. His openness, candor, and direct honesty was a model that I used for my own leadership qualities. Never judgmental, but always able to use great judgment helped Barry in his critical CFO role where we worked alongside each other for many years. Never hesitate to ask Barry to pursue any type of project regardless of its complexity or difficulty.
Barry was always my go-to person for everything finance-related. He is a true partner with Human Resources, taking the time to provide guidance and support. His knowledge, tenacity, and humor are one of a kind!
Barry Brover has been a colleague of mine for over 30 years. When Barry joined Barnes & Noble College, we were a very small private company with annual revenues of approximately $100 million, by the time Barry left we were a public company with over $2 billion in revenues.
From his CFO position and eventually, Executive V.P. Operations, Barry significantly contributed to the growth of the Company through our Comp Store sales increases, as well as acquisitions. Most importantly from our humble beginnings, he was instrumental in putting the accounting and expense infrastructure and policies that were utilized throughout our organization and allowed us to grow both in revenues and most importantly, in profitability.
In my 45 years of work experience, he is one of the finest individuals I’ve ever had the experience of working with!
Barry possesses unique skills; not only was he an exceptional CFO with financial, operational, and market communications acumen, but he was also my significant partner in running a two billion-plus company. Barry always delivers results beyond expectations with no project or issue being too large or small. Barry was and remains my trusted advisor.
