How I can help you
I have over 40 years of experience in the operational aspects of Export /Import businesses, including 5 years in Japan and 35 years in the USA. During that time, I handled, among other products, importation of industrial and communication equipment from Japan. Likewise, I exported U.S. equipment manufactured by small and large companies. My academic training (MBA-SF State 1977, International Business Management) and real life experience and teaching experience (City College of SF-Small Business class) all aid my ability to explain how to go about setting up an effective Import/Export business. Since joining SCORE in 1996, I have focused on counseling for Export /Import business ventures. I have also acted as organizer, coordinator and moderator of the Export-Import Seminar (currently not offered). My language skills include Russian and Japanese.
At the present time, I mentor clients only on import/export questions and not on general business startup or business management questions. I am available by appointment for in-person meetings on Thursdays.
