Background

Summary

I am a partner at a rapidly growing Volumetric Forecasting and Normative Database solution provider, Top Box Associates. I have over 20 years of hands-on experience in marketing research, R&D, analytics, and management (P&L and staff). I work closely with clients to develop creative research designs and innovative approaches to new product opportunities. During the course of my career I have conducted and consulted on more than 2,000 studies covering Financial Services, Consumer Goods, Pharmaceuticals, Quick Serve Restaurants and Durable Goods in the Americas, Europe (East and West) and Asia.

I hold a degree in Economics from Miami University (Ohio), have held senior positions with several research and consulting firms, including AC Nielsen, MMA, FYI, NFO, and TNS. I founded Delta Information Group, which specialized in Pharmaceutical analytical software solutions, which later became part of FYI.

I am an acknowledged expert in new product forecasting, marketing mix analysis and new product research in general. Of note, I have contributed to the successful launch of more than 200 new products that have generated in excess of $750 million dollars in sales during their first year of launch. My research has been published in industry journals and I have presented at industry events.
