In today’s environment the need to cut costs while looking for new ways to generate income is paramount.
Business owners and executives are not getting practical, workable solutions from their C-Level executives.
Existing cultures, competing interests or ‘kingdoms’ are being internally protected.
More and more executives tell us:
“We need a third party advisory group to evaluate and suggest real solutions!”
We exist to do right by people.
Humility -the absence of pride and fear in the service of others.
Get stuff done -Self-motivated and diligent-always thinking about what’s next or what could be better.
Doing the right thing -‘What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right.’
We provide culture, operations, and financial performance consulting services.

I’ve spent the past 6 years working with senior leaders and executives at Allstate and Walmart helping them improve the health of their organizations and culture. Prior to that I worked as an insurance agent, non-profit program coordinator, and youth pastor (no not all at the same time). I have a MA in Intercultural ministry and am working on my MBA. I’ve been married for 13 years and have 6 kiddos. Three are biological and three are adopted. We also fostered 10 other kiddos from 2013-2017. In my ‘spare’ time, I’m an avid runner (2 marathons and 14 half marathons and counting), roast my own coffee, and constantly seem to be making my wife’s woodworking dreams come true.
I’ve spent the over 25 years in working in the mortgage industry with over 15 in executive level financial positions including CFO of both Home Point Financial and UWM. In addition to accounting and finance oversight during my career in mortgage banking, I have also had responsibility for HR, IT, Facilities, Project Management and Servicing. I have also been involved in several M&A transactions on both the buy and sell side.
I’ve been married for 18 years and have 2 kids. They keep me busy chauffeuring them to various sporting events as well as coaching. In my free time I enjoy playing golf, soccer and competing in Triathlons.
