How I can help you

I can help you with manufacturing, imports/exports, distribution, wholesale and retail sales. My executive career was primarily in the ceramic tile and stone business. I was managing partner and principal owner of the NJ/NY/PA operation of one the largest tile import and distribution operations in the U.S., with sales of $100M and about 500 employees in 32 locations. Previously I served as president of North American operations for an English tile manufacturer, one of the largest producers of tile in the world. My responsibility included two manufacturing facilities and nine distribution locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. I served for 12 years as a board member and executive committee member of the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association and in 2007 was inducted into the Hall of Fame by the industry. I traveled extensively throughout the world for business. I am a member of the Monmouth/Ocean, New Jersey and Southwest Florida chapters of SCORE.
