I have 25 years experience as a sales, marketing and general operations manager for large organizations throughout the Inland Northwest. I began my career with Cox Cable in 1984 and ultimately earned the position of Manager of Spokane Area Operations for PRIMESTAR where I managed the launch of PRIMESTAR direct broadcast satellite service to the Inland Northwest market, growing the business to a $5.1 million operation, serving 8,000 customers, prior to its subsequent sale to Direct TV in October 1998.
I leveraged my experience with Cox Cable and PRIMESTAR into a decade long engagement with Comcast Spokane serving as their Commercial Sales Manager from 1999-2009. During my tenure with Comcast I gained valuable experience conducting successful contract negotiations with businesses ranging in size from startups through Fortune 500 companies.
I am a licensed real estate broker, business broker and registered franchise broker in the State of Washington. I’m an avid distance runner and PSIA certified cross country ski instructor.
