Case Studies

Case Studies

I have been privileged to work with many different types of businesses around the world – working with different needs and goals as well as in different markets and cultures.

Through these experiences I have learned that the process for building a great business is applicable to any type of business, and working through the process points any business in the right direction toward meeting their goals.

Below are three examples of work I have undertaken for a range of different companies:

Stepstone – Short-term COO role to manage rapid expansion

Working in the midst of the dotcom boom, I helped expand the company across Europe to ensure they gained market domination, which was critical to the business flotation.

I drove radical change in an ex-Communist manufacturing company, taking it from fiscal loss to profit and growth as a successful part of a major western corporation.
