How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in operations, strategic planning, and business development. As a provider of professional services to federal agencies, I developed and applied effective operations, planning, business development, and administrative techniques to help firms succeed in the federal contracting space. I began my career working for a large, established federal contractor, where I developed a deep understanding of the industry and learned the fundamentals of the industry. I later applied this knowledge and skill set to start up a successful firm with three partners, which we operated for about twenty years. We developed the processes and procedures necessary for winning contracting opportunities, staffing them to ensure success, developing our staff, and establishing sound administrative processes and procedures to ensure the company met industry requirements.

I have been a SCORE mentor and workshop instructor since 2009, and have worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs so far. Let's get started.

"Gerry was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I am so excited to have this resource and look forward to calling on him for advice and guidance in the future." Alesia Z.

"Gerry was incredibly helpful and insightful in our first meeting.  I came away feeling even more driven than I already was to make my start-up as big and as successful as I envision it to be." Bryce A.

"I got so much help and information. I was nervous that my business was too early on to be taken seriously but I felt respected and completely comfortable with how the meeting went. I learned a lot." Nikki W.

"I met with Gerry Sanz and he was friendly, understanding, supportive, positive, patient and forthcoming with lots of information. He also knew what he didn't have answers to and was willing to find them for me or connect me with people who would know the answers." Mollie M.
