My first exposure to Advisory Boards was in the mid 1980s while running my own residential building company. As a member of a 12 man advisory board, I learned the benefit of using the wisdom of experienced executives from other industries and backgrounds. The growth and subsequent exit strategy of the company was truly helped by the input monthly from this Board of committed executives. Since that time I have been committed to serving on Boards and helping companies to growth and to provide for the orderly exit strategy of the business owner/CEO.
In 1995 I purchased the first franchise for Renaissance Executive Forums, which I ran until 2012. During that time I created and facilitated over 850 Forum meetings, lead over 2,500 individual coaching sessions and worked with many outstanding business leaders from all sectors of the economy.
In 2004 I was asked to join the Storm Industries, Inc. Board of Directors where I still serve today. During that time I have served on the Real Estate Committee and the Compensation Committee as a member and as Chairman. In 2016 I joined the Board of Directors of L&S Construction, an ESOP Company.
