By way of introduction, I'm a passionate, values-driven leader who founded Welsh House because I am a firm believer in the spirit of small business and it's role in today's broader economy. There will be a sizeable wave of small business owner retirements and exits in the near term and I have the experience, motivation, and team behind me to continue your tradition of success.
The Welsh House mission is near and dear to my heart as it pays homage to my grandparents who grew up in rural America and, even in the face of great adversity, improved their lives and the lives of many others through a tireless work ethic, always operating with integrity, and by drawing on traditional family values...much like the way I will operate as a business owner.
Prior to forming Welsh House, I led operations for a global manufacturer & distributor in Janesville, Wisconsin, was a strategy consultant focused on private equity clientele at KPMG US, carried out deal sourcing, due diligence, and portfolio optimization tasks at a lower middle market private equity firm in Los Angeles, California, and also spent nine years performing a variety of operations and supply chain roles at Schneider Electric, a global Fortune 500 energy management firm.
I was fortunate to be able to attend Penn State University where I earned a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and a Big Ten Championship playing D1 varsity soccer for the Nittany Lions. Later, I earned an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management with a focus in Finance.
In my spare time, I'm trying to stay warm in my hometown of Chicago, Illinois, rooting for Penn State football on fall Saturdays, working on my chef skills, or traveling the globe somewhere.
