Business/Financial Analyst - I can model anything
   United States
  |   Lewes, DE

Overview

I have fun with numbers.

Give me data and I will play with it, rearrange it, process it and finally present it in a way that reveals new insights to the problems it represents.

Service Description

My name is Doug.

After a 9-year career as an engineer building and fixing chemical plants, I went back to business school so that I could learn how to build and fix businesses.

I've seen business from many angles - big and little companies, public and private, manager and individual contributor. I've presented to a CEO as well as to groups of laborors. I've worked in a half dozen countries.

I enjoy applying the skills, experiences and insights acquired from that rich and diverse background to helping others.
