My main area of expertise comes from the business to business world. My wife and I owned a mailing/courier/lettershop business for 26 years. We grew the business from a home basement business employing 3 people to eventually 50 people and occupying 30,000 square feet of office/warehouse space.
We built our own building in 1996 and over the next 8 years constructed a total of 3 more buildings for the purpose of real estate investment. We are currently in the process of building a 4th warehouse/office building. I currently hold a real estate license and assist home buyers and sellers in reaching their particular property objectives.
In the past I have owned fast food restaurants and consulted on other mailing service startups in the upper midwest. I have also worked in the retail shoe business shortly after college.
My strengths are leveraging my experience and contacts to match people and projects in the area of commercial real estate and mergers/acquisitions.
Specialties: Management consulting. Commercial real estate sales and marketing, business brokering, Postal consulting and direct mail strategies.
