”It’s a fact that the best advisors are constantly in touch with CEO’s in the market place and therefore know what’s happening in the real world. When we are plugged into sectors such as Electrical Equipment Manufacturing, Environmental & Waste Management or Specialty Manufacturing, when we are engaged, we already have a pulse on the industry and access to excellent business intelligence. That’s a huge VERCOR advantage!”
Geoff has a BS from DeVry University in Phoenix, Arizona with a major in Operations Research and a Minor in Accounting. He enjoys sports and physical activity, is actively involved in the community and loves spending time with his wife and children. Geoff serves on the advisory board of Faithshire Leasing Corporation.
