He has more than 30 years of corporate finance experience, including senior level positions at Sweet Factory, Inc., Wherehouse Entertainment, Inc., Pic 'N' Save Stores, Dayton Hudson Corp. and Federated Department Stores Inc.
He holds a BS degree in industrial management from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University and an MBA degree from Xavier University.
