His strategic vision allows him to grasp concepts quickly and apply his extensive experience to business tasks such as financial planning/analysis, the identification and pursuit of operational efficiencies, and, ultimately, profit optimization.
Specifically, in his role as Fractional CFO, he had the opportunity to contribute to many different industries. He worked in a manufacturing environment while at Eddie Kane Steel, where he was responsible for building and fabricating many different types of steel variants for replacement parts for products produced by companies like Elgin, JLG, and their competitors. Each product is intricate in its design and requires a multitude of production activities due to its complexities. His responsibilities included building systematized cost models to make pricing more effective and efficient, as well as developing a system of KPIs that determined various successes and failures within the manufacturing process. In addition, he assisted Summit Drilling in Bridgewater, NJ, and Eat Clean Bro in Freehold, NJ, to increase profitability by up to 70% over a 2-year period. In both cases, he and his team identified systematized models that quickly allowed pricing to keep pace with costs. While installing these changes, they put together KPIs to track the success of the business model, in addition to tracking success/failures as they relate to corporate goals in sales, marketing, and operations.
