During my 50-year career, primarily in public accounting, I have worked with hundreds of businesses. My goal has always been to create value for my clients.

CPAs in public accounting have the opportunity to observe the success and failure of the clients they represent. We also have the opportunity to observe the benefit of good corporate governance. My goal, as an independent director, is to utilize my career experience to become a board member who assists management in increasing the value of the company the board serves.
