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.
A mid-sized Investment Banking Firm: National Sales Manager/Syndicate Director/market
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
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
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
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

Warehouseman, Striker Shoes 1987- 1989
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. While
working here, I did help redesign their record keeping system to make it
easier and more accurate.
Warehouseman, Video Providers 1991- 1993
This .was a fill-in position for a company, (no longer in business),
that supplied videos to Blockbuster Video. I managed the shipping area and
developed an inventory tracking system for them; simple but effective.
Equipment Leasing, Monarch Leasing
During my senior year in college, as well as for 18 months
thereafter, I marketed equipment leasing services to San Diego area business
for Monarch Capital, a fifteen year-old San Diego leasing company. I developed
prospects from my own efforts, gathered financial information necessary to
make determination of creditworthiness, and negotiated terms.
