After earning an MBA from Wharton, Alan as a leader enjoyed a twenty-five year career in Marketing, Strategic Planning and Finance with positions at Merrill Lynch, Gillette, Bausch & Lomb, Chase Lincoln First Bank, Marriott, and as the President and CEO of a training organization with multinational clients. Thus, he intimately knows the type of challenges, opportunities and risks his clients face.
In a career shift, Alan earned his Leadership Coaching credentials at Georgetown University in 2002 to concentrate on the growth of other executives rather than personally running companies. With this ongoing transformation, Alan continues to discover new ways to enable executives to succeed and subsequently builds powerful learning models to ensure their success. Alan has received the PCC certification from the ICF.
