Viking Mergers & Acquisitions (HQ)
17250 Lancaster Hwy, Ste 601
Charlotte, NC 28277
I have over 38 years of entrepreneurial experience in the technology, distribution and retail industries. My extensive business knowledge and enthusiasm for entrepreneurship make me a valuable part of the Viking team.
I have owned companies in four different industries, including a retail computer business which I grew into a national computer distribution company. With a strong technology and wholesale background, I have sold IT companies that were in the managed service provider (MSP), IT training school, network and project management, IT data security reseller, Microsoft and Sage reseller, software developer, training and consulting, high availability data storage, telecom and outsourced IT staffing industries. I recognize a company’s strengths and growth opportunities and assist business owners in achieving the maximum value for their business.
As a business owner, I bought and sold my last two businesses through Viking Mergers & Acquisitions. I provide a unique perspective to help sellers get rewarded for all of their years of hard work and help buyers “Live the American Dream” of owning their own business and taking charge of their own destiny.
I served in the Air Force for 4 years as a jet engine mechanic and as a member of the NCO Leadership School during the Vietnam War. I graduated from the University of Tampa with a B.S. degree and the University of South Florida with an M.S. degree and I served in the Air Force for four years by the time I was 22. My family has lived in Charlotte for 25 years. I’ve been happily married for 43 years and we have two children and two grandchildren.
