I have a Bachelors of Science and a MBA, both with a concentration in Finance. I am also a Certified Management Accountant and a Certified Valuation Analyst (Business Valuations). At one point in time I also held a Series 7 designation but since I was not working for a "broker dealer" this designation expired.
In regards to my professional background, I have been in senior level financial and operational roles (CFO/Controller, CEO or COO) for over 25 years. This experience has been garnered in many different industries. Most of this experience has been with financially distressed firms.
Generally speaking, business (and specifically finance/accounting and marketing) has always fascinated me. I love challenges and love to challenge myself and others.
I am basically an optimistic person in the sense that I look for a solution and don't dwell too much at unfortunate times or failures. Spend most of my energy on how to solve the negative situation or problem. Same methodology for teaching, how to make one better and enhance positives instead of dwelling on negatives.
