Who We Are

"The Intertwine Group has a very deep understanding of their subject matter, They were also was able to very quickly understand our own concepts and ideas. Many consultants tend to push you down a formulaic path designed for their billing profile. Not them - they take time to understand your own issues and concerns and direction before applying their considerable CPG industry knowledge. We are more advanced in our business, and have a stronger stance in the marketplace thanks to their guidance and advice."

I am a food nerd, it’s an undeniable fact. I’ve been in this business for over 25 years. I started in a management training program for a boutique chain of restaurants right out of undergraduate school. I’ve been a territory sales representative, a general sales manager, led a supply chain organization, and served as a senior executive.  I even owned a food brokerage firm. I’ve called on just about every type of customer in just about every channel.  Along the way, I’ve had great mentors, made plenty of mistakes, and had my fair share of successes.

I don’t claim to be an expert. I do, however, consider myself a lifelong student. I feel as if I’ve been the beneficiary of a holistic view of the industry. Today, I use that acquired knowledge to help emerging food and beverage brands grow.

This is my passion as I am sure it is yours.

As a lifelong educator, I place a high value on continuous improvement and learning. I utilize my understanding of effective pedagogy to help create all the training material, content and workshops that we produce for our clients. It is exciting to combine industry expertise with good teaching theory to deliver really meaningful results. 

Let's face it, another big role of a teacher is holding your students accountable. Things happen at the speed of life and frequently we get swept away. We wind up spending all of our time working "in" our businesses and very little working "on" it or "on" ourselves. One of the things we attempt at The Intertwine Group is to infuse accountability into everything we do in order to improve focus and drive results. 

If you work with us, I will be your accountability partner. Helping you and your team look up from the mundane.
