As a seasoned senior-level executive I have an extensive track record of successfully turning around underperforming business operations while increasing revenue growth and profitability for multi-million-dollar organizations within B2B and B2C markets. I’m a transformational leader with expertise in mergers and acquisitions, change management, organizational restructuring, capital funding, new product development, rebranding, and e-commerce. I grew up in a family retail business where I learned business operations, people management, and democratic leadership. I began my career with JCPenney and later joined Sport’s Authority’s start-up team. Throughout my career, I advanced into product development, Asian sourcing, product and brand marketing, operations, and eventually CEO. I hold several US patents and have a deep understanding of overseas manufacturing and distribution. At Sports Authority I was instrumental in disrupting the “Mature” backyard category, by creating “Monster Games”. I was told that no D-1 College team would sign an exclusive football helmet deal, but within 90 days of conception, I signed an exclusive with Georgia, USC, and Penn State. Influenced by Winston Churchill and Jimmy Valvano I was inspired to never give up no matter the obstacles.I am passionate about making a difference in business and in the community. Throughout my career, I’ve served on several Boards of Directors and was an active volunteer for Johns Hopkins University's Traumatic Head Injury Research Project. Exposure to the challenges of running a family business and my ground-up business experience have laid the foundation for a successful career as a senior executive. Today, I am an agile decision-maker who relies heavily on performance data and insights to drive results while fostering a culture of transparency, innovation, and employee engagement. I am a highly effective communicator with exceptional people skills and the ability to influence stakeholders at all levels within an organization. Further, I’m a strong networker and competent negotiator.This statement aptly reflects my attitude in life and relentless sense of determination: “Success in not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston ChurchillAdditional Competencies: Marketing & Branding | Accounting & Finance | P&L Management | Financial Analysis | Import & Export | SEO & SEM | GAAP Analysis | Risk Management | R&D | Analytical Problem Solving | SOP Development | Project Management | Leadership Development | Intellectual Curiosity
