Core Accomplishments

Acquisition and affective turnaround of a failing business (1997)

  • Acquired a failing business (Transonic), and within five years had grown the company by 400%, from $600,000 in annual sales to over $2,500,000. Increased the staff from 4 to 18.

Operations Management:

  • Created the blueprint to grow Transonic by implementation of higher level of workmanship, providing more exciting options to our clients, and training our staff on how to follow through in every detail of their job description to ensure that our clients received an exceptional shopping experience.

Human Resources:

  • Spearheaded the training of Transonic staff, and implementation of the business model to achieve 400% growth over a short period of time. Part of our success was founded by instilling within each of our staff a belief that they personally, played a significant role in the success of the company as a hole.

Founded Coast to Coast Investment Group LLC (2006)

  • In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, I launched a real estate holding company in the summer of 2006. Under normal circumstances this would not be a great accomplishment, but considering the full economic and real estate collapse which began in the summer of 2008, I successfully navigated this company through incredibly challenging times. The company still stands strong today.
