I am a senior executive with extensive experience and successes in sales, business development, business coaching and marketing combined with an in-depth understanding of all aspects of a business. My core experience is in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, capital equipment, surgical products and physician services. . Services I provide include:
My career spans Sales Representative, Product Manager, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Operating Officer, and certified Business Coach and Consultant. Much of my experience is in medical markets.
From sales I moved into product management with a major pharmaceutical company. I found complex challenges of product management stimulating and rewarding. The position had the responsibility of a general manager with absolutely zero authority. So I learned the art of motivating people to do something for me.
From that experience, I moved to taking on the challenge of a medical device start-up. Our start-up became one of the top three companies in its industry. We were highly profitable 35-million-dollar company that changed the industry. All that in just under 5 years!
Although not a “natural salesman,” I became a successful through hard work and desire. Learning the sales processes and selling techniques really helped me become a better trainer.
As a sales and marketing executive, I was always in the field working with my reps. I loved helping close deals. Sometimes, I was the executive “fixer” when things went wrong. Most of all, I am the “salesman’s sales manager,” seeing the world from their point of view.
In 2001, I became one of the first franchise owners of what is now called Action COACH (Action International). I helped my business owner clients improve their revenues by hands on coaching and support.
