​I am a native Miami Beachian who has been selling and managing my whole life in the areas of office equipment, document management services outsourcing, mortgages, and sales/marketing training for companies like Xerox and IKON before going solo. I am affiliated with all of the professional sales and marketing associations, honor societies, and fraternities in which I hold all six of their professional certifications. I have been an adjunct professor at the University of Miami, Barry University, American InterContinental University (on-ground, hybrid, and online deliverables), Florida Atlantic University, Miami Dade College, Northwood University, Nova Southeastern University, Strayer University, South College. and Everglades/Keiser University teaching sales, sales management, marketing, management, negotiation, diversity, leadership/ethics, business research methods, operations management, real estate, mortgages, and strategy at all levels. I have conducted executive education and professional association seminars, consulted with mortgage companies, and been a guest speaker for various groups.

I am currently Professor of Marketing @ Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) Worldwide Online in Daytona Beach, FL after a decade away as Professor of Management and Marketing @ Sullivan University (SU) Graduate School of Business in Louisville, KY and Chair/Associate Professor of Management and Marketing @ Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) in Harrogate, TN where MBA students voted me Faculty Member of the Year (2012-13). I am a former LMU Sam Walton Fellow for Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE; now renamed ENACTUS) and LMU Chair of the Management, Marketing, and Professional Golf Management Departments. I am published and cited in textbooks, websites, and scholarly and professional trade journals. My research interests are professional salesmanship, sales management, general management, marketing, communication, cross-cultural values, performance leadership, motivation, strategy, entrepreneurship, and international business. I serve on the editorial review board for the Interdisciplinary Journal of Contemporary Research in Business (IJCRB). I am a recipient of a Teaching Excellence Award from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). I am CEO of ‘Hink, Inc.’, my own sales, marketing, management, and keynote speech consulting practice since 1991. My book (now in its 3rd Edition), ‘Selling By Objectives (SBO): The Handbook for More Profitability in the 21st Century’, is receiving rave reviews. I’ve also written a marketing textbook ‘Senior Seminar in Marketing Topics’.

I hold a BA in Political Science from the University of Miami (Magna cum Laude), an MBA from Barry University, and dual DBA degrees in Management (11/02) and Marketing (4/09) from Nova Southeastern University. I am listed in Who's Who in Professional Management, National Association of Sales Professionals Registry of Who's Who, and Metropolitan Registry of Who’s Who Executives and Professionals, The Global Directory of Who’s Who, and Faculty Row of Super Professors.

I reside with my wife of 37 years, Deb, in Louisville, Kentucky and have three adult ‘kids’ (Jennifer, Melissa, and Steven). I love going to live theatre, watching basketball and football, bowling, table tennis (ping pong), reading, music, and jogging.
