Over 40 years of public accounting, entrepreneurial and management experience. Leveraging my leadership and financial experiences, I work with middle market businesses and their owners to ensure they grow, maximize business value and achieve personal financial success.

Held a leadership role in the due diligence, ultimate merger and management of two equal size CPA firms, which came together to become a Top 100 CPA. The firm ranked number 67 in the country with annual revenues in excess of $45 million.
