Career Highlights

WHAT I DO
I help the Founders, CEOs, and Business Development executives of knowledge-based companies get even better profits faster.

By asking the right questions we discover and define opportunities to make their business even better. More importantly, we answer two simple questions:
1) Where should you play?
2) And, how do you win?

WHY IT MATTERS
At times you know the challenge and just need help putting a finger on what to do.

But, what about those periods when you feel everything is humming? How much profit are you leaving on the table?

Why is it that things pop up from nowhere and DERAIL your expectations?

And to be quite honest…

you're FED UP.

But the SCARY thing is…

realities change faster NOW than ever. And, if you don't make it right the business will do far WORSE…

Imagine not having to worry about this anymore. What would that do for you?

Interested? I got your back.

WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT
I've spent more than 20 years working with progressive leaders of companies and emerging ventures. I've also been an Assistant Professor teaching entrepreneurial innovation at the graduate level for over 12 years. It's the fusion of these worlds that gives me the ability to ask the tough questions that fall perceived barriers, help people engage more, and produce agile solutions. All of which lead to:
✓ enhanced revenue growth
✓ stronger partnership opportunities
✓ and, improved clarity of purpose

What Others Say

"Our entire organization was very pleased with the outcome. Don demonstrated a deep understanding of our business and met our demanding time-to-completion need. He was able to move from a need to a business reality with insight and efficiency, more than delivering on our expectations.”

- Charles D. Smith, Jr., Chairman/CEO, New Media Technology, Inc.

“Don and I worked together at Showtime Networks when I was GM of the Showtime Satellite Networks division and Don was VP for Financial Strategy for Showtime Networks Inc. Don is adept at building key relationships and at working effectively across matrixed organizations. He is well-versed, well-researched, analytical, and presents his ideas well. When the time came to sell the division, Don provided resourceful and inventive deal support and financial analyses. Having Don on our team helped me to close the deal and direct a successful business transition that produced significant value for both the acquirer and SNI. Don is an insightful businessperson who gets results.”
