Summary

INDEPENDENT BOARD OF DIRECTOR

I recently retired from KPMG following a full career in public accounting with that firm.  During my career, I have worked and lived in both the US and Europe.  My experience includes leadership positions within the firm as well as senior partner for some of the firm's most significant global industrial clients.  Besides numerous community based board positions, I have also been a board member of KPMG's Bermuda based captive reinsurance company.  Naturally, I have extensive experience as an audit partner for US listed companies, their Boards and Audit Committees.  I am well versed in the substantive issues facing Boards today, including corporate governance, transparency, and risk management and believe my experience is well suited to add value in the right Board situation.

My interest is to join 1 or 2 high quality US or non-US based boards later this year or early in 2010, either in the public or private company sector.
