- Finance that growth
Business owners take risks and make things happen, and that is why I love working with them. I bring 30+ years of experience in finance, accounting, operations, and sales to help business owners solve their challenges.
I have held CFO and controllership positions with energy, various service, trucking, engineering, procurement, and construction companies. My CFO responsibilities have encompassed financial strategy & planning, insurance, working closely with operational managers and compliance. I have negotiated and obtained a diverse range of financing packages for M&A, working capital, equipment, real estate, and aircraft capitalizations as well as prepared investment banking sales packages for multiple companies and properties. During my tenure I have strategically managed small to larger middle market privately owned companies through multiple economic cycles including turnaround situations and periods of significant working capital and capital asset investment growth.
I experienced the first 1/3rd of my career as a commercial banker lending to numerous commercial and industrial industries while working for major US banking systems. Financing packages ranged from $1 million to $500+ million which at times also included an investment bank to offer complete financial capital structures.
I earned my B.A. degree in Accounting from Hastings College, Hastings, NE and my M.S. in Finance from Colorado State University. My wife Kathy and I live in Littleton, Colorado and enjoy spending time with our two children and their families. My leisure activities focus on being outside as much as possible including golfing, hiking, mountain biking or just simply walking our Labrador Retriever.
If we work together, I promise that I will always put your interests first, and that in a year or less, we will reduce your stress about cash flow, your business will be running better, and we will be eliminating the barriers to your company's success.
