How I can help you

Over the past 40 years I have had the chance to work with different business people, in many industries and stages of development (from idea to operating company, to sell off). I love helping people improve and develop their business, their teams and their markets. If I can do this via SCORE and help business teams this would be great! I have worked with SCORE in Washington DC. Brands I have supported include American Express, MasterCard, MBNA, BofA, Maritz, Inc. Air Products, Rich Products to name a few. I am the inventor and awarded patents for the pre-paid and stored-value payment systems (gift card, loyalty cards, reward cards, etc.) and launched The Affinity Center International, raising the capital to launch and build a successful business focused on non-dues revenue source for associations via a first of its kind loyalty program, attaining over 2 million members. While at Maritz I developed and launched a $400 million dollar product line, retooled the catalog business and created a joint venture with AMEX generating over $1B a year in sales. While at Centennial I developed a marketing and sales team that took the company from $170M to over $500M in 3 years.
