I have been a member of CABB for about a decade. My personal experience as an attorney and accountant through the controller-ship level of a Fortune 500 sized company. I have been activley involved in more than twenty small businesses and have served as a volunteer for SCORE, an affiliate of the SBA. I also serve as Managing Director of Shoreline Partners, a lower middle market M&A firm with national reach. All of this allows me to bring a unique perspective to the issues facing small business owners. In my time with CABB, I have sold everything from a hot dog stand to a large boat manufacturer and everything in between, so I feel I understand many of the issues that small business owners face every day.
