- Senior Instructor, Marketing
I earned my MBA in marketing from Iona College and my BBA in marketing management from Baruch College-div. CUNY. In addition to Mercy, I teach business courses at several NYC area colleges. I am also the principal founder and CEO, of my own direct marketing, e-commerce-wholesale corporation named, Real Deals USA, Inc., specializing in the sale of men’s and ladies apparel and accessories. Formerly, I was a career corporate divisional merchandise manager in retailing, and I was able to spearhead an apparel division for the large southern retailer Belk Stores, www.belk.com, for nearly 20 years. Furthermore, I was a contributing editor to the trade magazine, Fashion Mannuscript, where I created a monthly article revolving around a specific and unique theme. I am married, having just celebrated my 50th wedding anniversary, and I am the father of two grown children, and two grandchildren. I live live nearby our main campus, in Scarsdale, New York. Outside of teaching business, and being a successful entrepreneur, educator and author, my interests lie in: entrepreneurial investing, company research, and reading across an eclectic array of topics and subjects.
