Through coaching, training, consulting, speaking and writing, I have committed myself to helping business leaders succeed on new levels.
Using skills earned over many years in business, I provide consulting, coaching, professional training and speaking to companies to help them unlock performance potential in their business and in their people. My goal is to help companies align their business strategies with their hiring strategies to get the right people in the right jobs, and more importantly, to keep them.
Through training programs based on my two books, Both Sides Win and Getting the People Equation Right, presented to hundreds of participants from both mid-market and large companies, and through my newest program, Value Creation Leadership, I foster professional growth in leadership, negotiation, sales, customer service and people development.
My over thirty years of business and legal experience paired with a cutting-edge behavioral assessment tool, has given me the unique ability to provide uncommon insight into people and business performance.
I began my career as a corporate lawyer for a prominent New Orleans law firm. After a decade of practicing law, I moved into private enterprise to lead sales and marketing efforts as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for LEDCO, Inc., a natural gas pipeline company then listed by Inc. magazine as one of the 100 fastest growing privately held companies in America.
From LEDCO, I became the CEO of Nortech Energy Corp., a natural gas marketing and trading joint venture startup of a large diversified energy company. Most recently, from 2010 to 2016, I was a part of the team that built Response Team 1 from start up to the second largest insurance restoration company in the U. S. We were recognized by Inc. magazine consecutively as one of the 500 fastest growing privately held companies in America.
I currently serve as a Senior Advisor to a private equity firm and am a member of the Entrepreneurship Advisory Council, Harbert College of Business, Auburn University. I hold a BA degree from the University of Texas, Austin and a Juris Doctor degree from Southern Methodist University.
Through coaching, training, speaking and assessment, we help talented people achieve more of their potential, have a positive impact on the people they lead and the customers they serve, and get the right people in the right jobs. The payoff is improved personal and business success and effectiveness.
