HELPING BUSINESS  

Executive leadership & business development for Cleantech, Telecom, and Government.

Navigating the business terrain can be challenging.

CLEAN TECH

 

To succeed as a leader in the energy field, you need to be part physicist, part engineer, lobbyist, manager and futurist.  I’ve been in wind power and energy efficiency through an oil collapse from $48 to $11/barrel and natural gas as it collapsed from $9 to $3 per MCF.  I’m a Founding Fellow in the Northeast Clean

Energy Council.   

TELECOM

 

To succeed in telecom you need to be part software and hardware engineer, part regulator, lobbyist, manager, futurist.  I’ve designed huge national voice and data networks, marketed fiber optic transmission, designed and deployed LTE networks with every kind of backhaul imaginable in many venues like sports, racing, political, music, in cities, the desert and cross borders.

 

GOVERNMENT

Government touches all aspects of the telecommunications and energy sectors that I work in.  From my first job at City Hall in Boston to work with congressional staff on hearings, securing a dozen FCC special temporary authorizations, working with DHS on jamming and cross-border exercises, work on every presidential election since 1976 and in 2018 turning an incumbent out of a US House seat.
