Company Overview


We all know that starting and running a small business or nonprofit can be most rewarding, but it is still
a lot of hard work. The problem is that many small business owners have specialized, creative visions,
which is what got them started, but are not skill business managers, especially when it comes to
financial accounting, planning and information technology. Most business owner and nonprofit
directors don’t understand their financial statements. Financial statements weren’t designed with the
average small business owner or nonprofit director in mind. As a business owner I empathize with your
challenges, but as a financial and information technology professional, I offer the expertise to help you overcome them. It is my
mission to demystify this data into information that you can use to manage and grow your business or
No business plan, a shortage of cash, or doing too much too soon are reasons that 60 to 80 percent of
small businesses and nonprofits fail in their first five years. I firmly believe that, with the right
information and analytics, this rate can be significantly reduced. I know how to turn numbers into
measurable business value and am most proud of the start-ups and failing companies I have been able
to turn into success stories.
Information and how it is used is critical to business success. That’s why big business spends so much on
consulting, big data, business analytics and business intelligence systems, putting the small and medium
business owners and nonprofits who cannot afford high priced consultants or the data analytics systems
at a real disadvantage. So that’s why I founded Wolverine Business Solutions. Your data may not be big,
but you need to have the right information and analytics to grow your business. I have developed “Your
Virtual Business Adviser™” a system that gives you the benefits of a consultant, business intelligence and
analytics at a fraction of the cost. I chose wolverine for the name of the company because the wolverine
is small, but noted for its strength, cunning, fearlessness, and voracity, taking on much larger animals.
And that is what I want for my clients. If you want your business to perform like a wolverine, we can
help. Let’s talk!

My clients have ranged from the top Wall Street firms to Santa Claus in industries that include financial services, manufacturing, health care, nonprofits, hospitality, restaurants, entertainment, transportation and government. In my free time, I enjoy leveraging my skills as a volunteer at our local college’s business school and as chairman of my parish finance council.
