Highlighting here another of our Certified SCORE Mentors in the Northwest NJ Chapter, Matt Frankel!

Matt Frankel has been volunteering with SCORE for over 7 years now.  His experience and business knowledge has helped dozens of small business owners over the years.  We wanted to highlight him here to share the fabulous qualities he brings to the table when working with SCORE clients.  Remember, all Mentoring is offered thru SCORE at no cost to the client!

Matt has worked within the Consumer Electronics and Insurance arenas for over 40 years holding various jobs from distribution, retail, and consumer electronics titans such as Panasonic and Sony to insurance giant AIG.  His early focus was on sales and marketing, but then found that he knew how to grow a business as well as manage an organization to thrive within any environment.  His expertise helped many large retailers and manufacturers become more profitable while growing their businesses.

When we asked him why he decided to volunteer his time and energy to SCORE, he responded:  “I have always helped people who were either within my employ to succeed and grow or those who just needed help.  A number of times, people within my organization reached as high as they could grow within my organization.  I helped them find other jobs, either within other areas of my company or outside of the company and maybe within one of my competitors.  I, therefore, felt that becoming a Score Certified Mentor was a natural next step after I retired.”

Here is how Matt councils his SCORE clients:  “The number one quality needed as a mentor is listening.  I believe I do this very well!  Many times clients come into their first mentoring session thinking they help in a particular area.  After listening to them, they may really need help in a different area.  My expertise is in sales, marketing, & general business management.  All areas that small business owners need to succeed.”
