First let me say that I am looking forward to working with the Board of Directors to grow the Beachwood chamber, and to network and engage with the community business leaders.
Prior to joining the Chamber, my career has been as a professional sales and marketing executive, most notably working for a Switzerland based global manufacturing company as Director of Sales for the United States and Canada. In that role I have a demonstrated record of success that includes effective marketing strategies, customer relationship management, M&A teams, and new product introductions.
I am a former SCORE/SBA volunteer mentor, and a member of the Board of Directors for the Cuyahoga Valley Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the French American Chamber of Commerce. I am also an usher for our local church, St Basil the Great.
My wife Janet and I are blessed with three children. Jason is a CPA, Carli is a data analyst, and both reside in the Cleveland area. Samuel is a mechanical engineer who has recently taken a job assignment in Scotland.
When not working I am a mediocre but enthusiastic golfer, and also enjoy biking and supporting Cleveland sports.
