I am an experienced business person capable of managing almost any type of business that requires leadership, communications skills and the ability to deal with people on all levels. I am also a trained sales professional and manager seeking a challenging, fun and exciting environment to work in and also have the self-motivation to work alone. At this stage of my career I would like to use my experience and skills in whatever capacity is necessary to reach stated goals.

My additional and primary duties were to hire and rebuild the sales staff throughout the western United States in an effort to recapture the company's market share and declining customer base. I did so very successfully until such a time that the company could not support the commitment they made to achieve the stated goals.

I purchased a small aftermarket auto parts business based in Livermore, Ca, moved it to a larger facility in Dublin, Ca in a better location, added a more diverse product line, increased inventory and provided far better customer service. The company was then sold to a larger rival company in early 2006.

02/1999 to 06/2001 Co-Chairman ZipCityUsa

Co-founded and headed up the start-up of an Internet design, communications and marketing company whose target market was small business. My early responsibilities included the set up of all company related business, i.e., financial, legal, payroll and admin assignments, etc, as well as fund raising for our initial round of financing. We raised just over a million dollars in two months from friends, family and various groups of investors. I was also instrumental in shaping the direction of the company which included opening new markets, staffing and overseeing the training of our sales force, advising on all marketing activities and IT decisions, and the time consuming efforts of continued fund raising.


After a successful 14 year career with a large multinational corporation I started a small transportation company in the East Bay to fill the need of a growing community seeking low cost scheduled transportation to and from the Tri-Valley and all Bay Area airports. The company was independently financed and solely owned and operated by myself and a small staff in Pleasanton, Ca. The company was started with three vans and four employees and was grown to fifty five vehicles of different sizes and a hundred and thirty five employees with gross annual income of over ten million dollars. The company was merged and then sold to a rival competitor in December, 1999.

06/1970 to 06/1983 Sales Person to Division Manager


Hired as a sales trainee in the San Francisco branch selling supplies and accessories for a multi-national manufacturer headquartered in London of various types of printing and duplicating equipment. After one year I was promoted to selling the hardware itself and did so very successfully for the next four years. In 1975 promoted to sales manager in the Oakland branch and under the supervision of the branch manager I directed a sales staff of twenty five and I was responsible for hiring, training and sales production. In 1977 I was promoted to a small branch as manager in the San Fernando Valley. In 1978 I was promoted to a larger branch in Anaheim, Ca. and in 1979 I was again promoted back to Oakland as the branch manager. At that time Oakland was a large group 1 branch with a high volume quota and a large staff of seventy five. Branch managers were responsible for the profitability of the entire operation and managed the activities of administration, shipping and receiving, parts and service as well as all activities of sales managers and sales people. In addition the manager was heavily involved with both local level and corporate marketing activities. In 1981 I was promoted to Division Sales Manager of the Southwest division of the company which included ten branches in southern California, Nevada and Arizona. The Division Manager was responsible for the profitability of all branches in his jurisdiction and the staffing of all branch and sales managers as well as division level personnel. The total number of people in my division numbered in excess of eleven hundred. I reported directly to the National Sales Manager and to the President of Gestetner USA.
