I am a consultative, profit-focused business leader with 18+ years of experience in selling and marketing high-end products in and to the specialty retail channel. I have worked in retail, as an independent sales representative, as a sales team leader and National Sales Manager. This breadth has given me a complete understanding of the entire chain, which has a clear impact on how I relate to and interact with the marketplace.
I also have a deep operations background that allows me to forge long-term relationships that don’t sacrifice profitability or customer service for short-term revenue growth. I’m an evangelist for sales forecasting and strategic planning that includes all aspects of business including design, production, sales and marketing, and finance. I love to work collaboratively and thrive in team leadership and mentoring positions.
