He significantly improved quality, on-time delivery, and customer satisfaction by reducing expenses and headcount to maximize efficiency and revenue contribution per employee.

Whitney’s entrepreneurial spirit knows no bounds. With a keen eye for business opportunities, he purchased not just one, but two high-end bike shops in Kona, Hawaii and San Diego, CA. By expertly managing operations, budgeting, and inventory, Whitney successfully increased sales and margins for both shops.
