    CRO, CFO

    My background has focused on executing company strategies leading to: increased market share, brand dominance, multiplied earnings, and return on investment; all leading to the highest valuations for equity holders. I work with stakeholders to assure business performance, reporting, and remediation to assure achievement of goals and objectives. I invest as an angel both individually and as part of a group.
