My Strengths: Maximizer. Strategic. Arranger. Positivity. Includer. (Gallup/Clifton Strengths Assessment).
At Newport, I serve as an advisor, fractional CEO, or M&A leader to drive growth or capital readiness activities to prepare for your transaction.
As a social entrepreneur, I co-founded ASPIRA-USA, a social impact company offering tech and entrepreneurship training, consulting and communications services to City Government Agencies, Non-profits, Grant-makers and CDFIs committed to empowering small businesses, underemployed, unemployed, returning vets, seniors and returning citizens. With the devastating impact of Covid-19 our NEW DAWN – NEW DAY! program is being offered to support women and minority owned businesses as they reinvent and re-emerge.
I created, chair and co-host regular in-person and virtual programming with Nasdaq showcasing the amazing stories of middle market leaders.
CEOs and PE sponsors call me when trying to grow, optimize or preparing to exit their business. That’s where my team and I are at our best – delivering expert advice, deep operating experience, senior-level connections, introductions to capital sources, access to new technologies and deal-making opportunities.
