I have spent over 30 years in the paint and coatings industry as an independent retailer, C-Suite level employee and consultant, coatings inspector, writer, podcaster and blogger.
My family began its multi-generational journey in the paint industry in 1907 when my great-grandparents founded Tremont Paint in the Bronx, New York.
As a consultant, I have worked for CEOs, painting contractors, paint manufacturers, coatings specific software designers, coatings equipment manufacturers, paint retailers, and wholesalers, trade magazines, condominium complexes, real estate organizations, and many other individuals and organizations that needed success in their coatings related endeavors.
Since selling my stores in 2019, I focus my attention on my writing & podcasting and dealer advocacy, consulting in the C-Suite on strategic issues and THE Revolution: My web site and e-commerce platform for independent paint dealers.
