February, 2001

OBJECTIVE: I will deliver high quality, team oriented management and direction, as well utilize many years of experience in directing, building, and managing marketing organizations, and investment banking
firms to attain my employer/partner’s, and their stockholder’s goals. My credibility and reputation for integrity within the investment banking community, walks before me and builds credibility with those with
whom I work. I have the experience spanning over two decades to do just that.

PROFESSIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

A mid-sized Investment Banking Firm: National Sales Manager/Syndicate Director/market development
officer: 1997 to Present:
In a span of one year, I have gained inclusion for this small, little known firm, into investment banking syndicates that have increased revenues, added new product, and created new opportunities for growth,
that had previously not been available to it.

National Securities Corporation: National Sales Manager: 1996-1997:
My charge was to: By acquisition and recruitment, add $4-5,000,000 in commission revenues to the firm, and to market syndicated underwritings, by building selling groups and securing underwriting
commitments, for the firm's deals. Inasmuch as all OSJ managers and Registered Representatives were Independent Contractors, management was necessarily by concurrance rather than by command.

Lam Wagner, Inc. (a regional Investment Banking firm): President/Managing Director:
1992-1994:
I built, managed, and developed this firm from inception to a business producing revenues of approximately $1.5million dollars per year. The firm handled institutional as well as retail clients, and investment banking clients. All Sales persons were Independent Contractors.

GNA Securities: Managing Director, So. California Region
The Holden Group: National Sales Manager, Banking Division: 1987-1992
These two competing insurance companies sought me out to build, under contract, complete marketing and management teams and functionaries for major national banks, seeking to reenter the securities and insurance industries. Over a five plus year span, I developed all of the securities and insurance marketing organizations for Bank of America in California, Arizona, and Nevada. These collective units were comprised of over 300 employees, producing sales in-excess-of $2billion dollars per year. In addition to selecting, recruiting, training, and hiring both regional sales managers as well as sales personnel, I
developed and implemented the reporting, compliance, and marketing goals and product introduction for these units.

Previous career experience: I have been continuously in management in the Securities and insurance industry all of my adult life. I have a spotless compliance history and have acted as an industry arbitrator
for over fifteen years and am qualified as an NASD Chairperson. In addition to my professional focus, I also own two e-commerce publishing sites; “i-love-a-book.com  and ”i-love-a-mystery.com”.
.
PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES AND SKILLS:
My people skills and interpersonal relationships have allowed me support to gain leadership positions within the San Diego community, in community associations, Community Development Corporations,
Balboa Golf Course Men's Club, and numerous committees. Additionally, I have served on the county as well as state of California Central Committees. I have relationships with numerous elected and appointed officials with the City and County of San Diego, including: Ms. Kimberly Layton, Assistant to Mayor Golding: 
Supervisor Ron Roberts,
Assemblyperson Chris Kehoe, and Rep. Susan Davis.

Technical skills: In that I built, and designed software for, my first computer in 1978, I am computer literate as well as conversant with the hardware of computers and use them extensively in my business and
personal life.

While attending San Diego State, I worked part-time as a warehouseman for Striker Shoes, an old and venerable name in San Diego, that, due to competition from the Malls and warehouse stores, has ceased to be in business.
