How does this work?

My expertise and passion is all about developing high growth channels and strategic alliances in financial accounting and ERP ecosystems for early stage growth cloud/mobile businesses with disruptive solutions, automating historically inefficient business processes. The key to success is building strong, magnetic teams enabled for extraordinary growth and constant reinvention.

My leadership philosophy is grounded in empowerment and engagement, focused on a clear mission, where team members can grow their skills, build their experiences and develop relationships they will leverage to take their careers to the next level in the organization as it experiences rapid growth.
