Drawing upon more than four decades of senior financial executive and operations management and business consulting experience in the furniture and furnishings industry working with many companies of various sizes, both privately and publicly-held, at the corporate, group and business unit levels, I launched The Downs Group. Since inception, The Downs Group has earned an outstanding, global reputation for providing significant results and increasing stockholder value.
The Downs Group provides expert senior business consulting, investment banking, mergers and acquisitions (buy-side or sell-side) and outsourced c-level (CFO and COO) executive management services to the furniture, furnishings and related industries working for business, legal, banking, factoring, investment and private equity entities.
The Downs Group faces many diverse challenges, provides unique insider perspectives, performs quick, effective expert analysis and solves critical issues within its key services areas for furniture and furnishings manufacturers, distributors, importers and suppliers achieving significant results unmatched by any other, or combination of, advisory, accounting, auditing, CPA, consulting, broker or investment banking companies serving The Downs Group’s focused industry. Downs Group is different.
Backed by my personal commitment to excellence, coupled with a stellar reputation, hard work and integrity, The Downs Group is a CEO’s confidant and “devil’s advocate”, key executive board of director’s member and trusted advisor, significantly surpassing the assignment scope. The Downs Group provides strict confidentiality, strong, seasoned executive management experience, “hands on”, in-depth industry expertise and achieves significant results within key services areas.
The lower left hand corner is a “block”, representing “cornerstone” (for building a solid foundation), the “arrow” pointing upwards (represents “driving superior results”) and both “key symbols” are surrounded by a “D” for Downs which means the Downs Group covers and embraces the client within its key service areas and focused industry.
