In 2012, I founded VirtualBoard based on the insight that the people buying businesses knew a lot more about buying than sellers knew about selling.
After working with high net worth investors, many of whom sold companies, I became aware that many discovered they knew more about selling after the transaction than before. Seems obvious, but it can be a very expensive lesson.
Before working with high net worth investors, I spent sixteen years working with CEOs. I served as Vice President of U.S. Field Operations for Vistage/TEC International, Inc. Vistage/TEC is the world’s largest CEO membership organization. I also headed their Chair Development Institute and TEC University that developed and offered conferences and workshops to TEC members and their companies. I have given given over two hundred presentations to CEOs and Chairmen around the world, including Australia, Mexico and England.
In addition to an MBA in marketing and entrepreneurial studies from York University, I completed leadership development programs at Harvard University and the Center for Creative Leadership.
Finally, I served as Chairman of Acordia of Mississippi, Chairman of Acordia Local Government Services, and as a Leadership Mentor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management.
