I am currently assisting clients on an interim basis only in the Tampa Bay region with a preference for the following niches:
Some of my past positions have included:
Dan worked for me for approximately six months as interim VP of Finance. During that time our company had a major problem with inventory control - both physically and financially. He did a great job in putting together action plans to fix our issues. Additionally, he put together a number of controls to improve our financial performance. His knowledge and work ethic were excellent. We tried to get him to permanently assume the position but due to family situations he declined.
I worked with Dan at following his tenure as the interim CFO/VP Finance. He was instrumental in returning the entity to an acceptable level of control and restoring confidence with the corporate parent. Dan also developed some the key metrics methodologies, and generally improved the subsidiaries reporting regimen. Dan has the unique ability to get the details right, while still focusing on the big picture. He is a results oriented leader with tremendous business acumen - a true professional, and I recommend him without reservation
Dan demonstrates strong analytical skills, sound business acumen, and a desire to contribute to organization results. He is an excellent planner and demonstrates expertise in managing complex planning challenges. During several years working together, Dan proved to be a sound advisor, strong contributor to organizational goals, and an excellent team player. Dan has the confidence to ask probing and challenging questions during the development of strategy and alternatives, and the team commitment to advocate and support business decisions.
Since joining xxx 3 years ago I've had the opportunity to work closely with Dan on a frequent basis. Dan was a key player and consistent contributor on a wide range of issues faced by the Americas sales organization. His strategic sense and analytic abilities allowed us to make sizable improvements in sales operations, most notably in the areas of planning, strategy, profitability analysis, rebates, CRM, incentive compensation, and reporting. Dan's ability to provide a thoughtful and balanced perspective was crucial, especially as we navigated through the centralization of the sales team. I would strongly recommend Dan for any senior positions that require a well-balanced, results driven, hardworking professional.
Dan has a strong grasp on sales operations, pricing, sales programs and customer and channel management that provides a good foundation for sales controlling, planning and analysis. Dan has a strong understanding of databases and their uses as a foundation for appropriate sales tools such as CRM. He is very personable and works well in teams.
Dan is a hard charging executive with a strong leadership skills and financial experience. He is quick to understand root causes of critical business issues and drive to sustainable resolutions. He can stay focused on strategic issues while managing day to day activities.
Dan was very thorough and detailed in each of projects in which he was involved. He also conducted himself in a very professional manner and was sincerely interested in ensuring the outcome of his work met expectations. Dan is very resourceful and blended in well with the organization which allowed him to operate with minimal direction and oversight.
During my interactions with Dan, I found him to be competent, professional, and committed to the highest integrity in accounting practices. I would gladly recommend him for future executive accounting positions.
Dan is a forward looking manager with strong financial management capabilities. His business acumen and great personality will allow any organization to grow under his open leadership style.
Dan did an excellent job at helping us during the 2005 bankruptcy proceedings. He was very professional and completed extensive financial work that helped enable Anchor to exit bankruptcy ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend Dan for consulting support.
I was very impressed with Dan's knowledge of Sarbanes Oxley and how it applied to accounting and financials for a public company. He developed very in-depth spreadsheets mapping our contracts and Sarbanes requirements. Very helpful.
Dan consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and a dedication to success. When Dan was tasked with leading a department in transition, his efforts produced quality results. I respect and admire Dan’s knowledge and experience, and enjoyed the opportunity to work and learn with him. For all of these reasons I can highly recommend Dan, and would have no reservations working for or with him again.
