He extended his consulting business to eventually cover countries on four continents, from the Far East to South America.


In 2000, their respective consulting businesses were combined into one organization called Commodity Resources International. Their shared business experiences and knowledge of international trade gave them a unique perspective and understanding of the dynamics of virtually all facets of international business, trade, and finance.
