An executive who elevates the entire organization by partnering with CEOs, who live in a frenetic, ever changing time, to absorb complexities, bring focus and act with consistency thereby realizing organizational excellence. As a sales, marketing and business development leader, I help CEOs meet extremely aggressive financial goals and regain momentum when growth stalls. During a successful seven-year VP/GM post with a computer telephony integrator, I grew revenues from $25 million to $175 million annually, and inverted a negative EBITDA in 2001 to a positive 21% in 2008. The top marquee cities were closed and awarded: NY, Chicago, and LA. By grabbing people’s attention, getting them focused and putting worries to rest, I eliminate the malaise confronting teams in difficult times. Customers, employees and partners are often skeptical over industry consolidation. By re-architecting a company’s identity with the CEO and ensuring organization wide alignment at every touch point, I successfully merged #1 with #3 while acquiring other players. The firm exceeded all commitments. A swift and sure footed executive, I am able to move easily between 50,000 foot strategies and two foot level complexities putting the company on firm standing. In taking sole responsibility for direct and indirect channels from the CEO, I maintained a consistent strategic posture with 7 dominant partners building barriers to entry protecting 80% of the business, yielding 60% share and two sole source arrangements. On being a member of the executive management team, I build value to achieve recapitalization and exit events by putting into action dynamic systems and advancing leadership at all levels. This combination yields crisp decision making, predictable outcomes and outstanding results. In my last VP/GM post, I helped the CEO facilitate the sale of his privately-owned company to a leading equity firm in 2005 and the second sale to a strategic buyer in 2008.
