You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I have advised over 20 CEOs in Pennsylvania re organization structure, layering, staffing, etc. Have helped them ensure they place employees with requisite capability in proper roles.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

It is critical for CEOs to ensure they have properly placed employees according to their level of capability. If not, founders will not optimize opportunities - employees will not be "big enough" to envision and complete role requirements. Accelerated growth can occur when organization structures, staffing and systems are requisite.

“Cutting thru the weeds” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Kevin. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Kevin for 6 years ... , during which I used him as a consultant to help my company grow through a difficult market downturn. Above all, I was impressed with Kevin’s ability to make the complex simple by drilling into a problem and taking it apart. And, no matter how tense a meeting, Kevin made everyone remember the bigger vision for the team and company. Kevin would be a true asset for any company or management team who is seeking an outstanding advisor to help them improve and grow.
