Welcome to my site

My industry experience is in investment banking, management consulting, and academia. I work at the intersection of corporate finance and corporate strategy, typically with an international focus. That said, I aim to make my research of interest to academics and those in industry. Client work and publications involve IPOs, M&A, corporate competitiveness, turnarounds, international business, the future of higher education, and other topics.

While professor and company advisor by day, I am also a frequent speaker, an investor in numerous start-ups, and a member of various boards.

My next big project is a book about forces that are making the U.S. less competitive in the world. Stay tuned.
