My career has revolved around Business Consulting managing multiple projects simultaneously for small, medium & enterprise size businesses and Personal Business Consulting for individuals and families.  I am a multi-dimensional analytical thinker with the ability to overcome obstacles, create advantages, negotiate successfully, win loyalties, and thrive under pressure.

Skills: Project Management, Business Analysis, finance, negotiations, communications and customer service are hallmarks of my skill set. I consistently bring projects in “on or under” budget and always on time. I possess the consistent ability to take on multiple projects with efficiency and success.

CMG Communications Management Group

Business Consulting & Project Management

CMG’s Business Consulting and Project Management goal is to free up the Owner’s or Manager’s time so they can focus on her or his “core” revenue generating business. CMG accomplishes this task by managing projects from small to large that are on the “peripheral” of the core revenue generating business. CMG works by the project or by the hour.
