Interim or Part-Time Executive Management: CEO/CFO, Speaker and Writer for SBA * Consulting, LTD The role of a leader is to determine strategy and establish core values, build a team around those values and deliver results by solving problems and moving a company forward. Throughout my career as an executive leader, I have consistently forged a path to success and have led others in solving problems and delivering value.
I have overseen double-digit growth year after year in companies where I have served. I have cut costs while carefully maintaining sufficient resources to support growth, increase cash flow, and improve profits. I have championed programs to increase revenue by empowering team members with information to assist them in surpassing their goals. I have also led turnaround situations where my team has helped to restore profitability.
I have served consultatively as a senior level financial and operating executive for the past 15 years in the roles of COO, CFO and Controller. In such capacities, I have implemented accounting systems and information technology solutions to companies both large and small, spanning various industries and sectors. I have implemented small accounting system solutions such as QuickBooks, Xero, and Peachtree, in addition to large ERP systems including Navision and MS Dynamics as well as MRP systems such as Macola.
A recognized thought leader in finance, operations, and IT, I have continued to serve as a mentor and educator. I served as an Adjunct professor at Lehman College (CUNY) for ten years. In the digital arena, I have held three webinars in the past year alone. I have created an on-line course for Proformative.com; a free online peer-to-peer global community of senior finance professionals centered around technology and the Office of the CFO. I have been quoted as an expert resource in numerous articles both in print and on the web.
I have delivered value through leadership, vision, and clear communication to stakeholders. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my career experience and how I can help your organization find solutions to its challenges.
