North Pier Advisory

Investment
Strategies

I specialize in advising small/middle market CPG and retail companies but am open to discussing other types of businesses to see if there’s a mutual fit. I try to be selective about who I work with. I’ll only take on a client if I’m confident I can add significant value. All clients work directly with me, and all relationships are rooted in trust and transparency. I pride myself on my reputation – most inquiries come from referrals within my network. Doing great work really matters to me and I’m “emotionally invested” in my client’s success. My focus is helping with “business fundamentals”. Examples of questions I can help answer below
