In today’s fast-paced business climate with shifting consumer preferences, ever-changing regulatory and technological requirements, and limited access to sufficient capital resources, it has become increasingly difficult for companies to develop and maintain their competitive advantage. Whether serving as an advisor or as an employee, Al has consistently utilized his forward-thinking abilities and diverse business experience to add value to organizations, assisting with maintaining their competitive advantage by improving their bottom line.
Prior to joining Nperspective, Al served in several senior financial executive positions with an outstanding record of success in directing business and financial operations and providing corporate governance for startup and established organizations. He founded a consulting company and was a partner with a national professional services organization where he successfully led the turnaround of a 50 year old manufacturing company with $5M in operating loss (over 2 years), to profitability within 12 months. He served as the CFO for a worldwide pioneer in the design and manufacture of laser systems for communications, industrial and government markets. In this capacity, Al developed strategic initiatives which reestablished corporate solvency, eliminated loan covenant defaults, paid down a substantial line of credit balance and ultimately restored banking confidence within a 5 month period. Additionally, during his tenure as CFO he also simultaneously served as the interim President of one of the company’s subsidiaries located in Boston, MA for twelve months.
