Eitan Grunwald

 

 

          My expertise is built on over twenty-five years of senior management experience as an executive in both for-profit corporations and nonprofit organizations.

 

          Since 2001 I have worked as a hands-on advisor to small businesses and nonprofits in need of planning and professional management, with particular attention to the practical issues of implementation, including operational challenges and integration with strategic plans.

         

          Prior to offering consulting services, I was General Manager for Weight Watchers of New Jersey for ten years, responsible for all aspects of the company’s operations and profitability, including the creation and implementation of highly successful strategic and business plans. I’m familiar with the management of family-owned businesses, franchises, and start-up companies as well.

 

          In the nonprofit sector I’ve held executive positions as District Director for the Muscular Dystrophy Association; Vice President of Development for the American Heart Association, New Jersey Affiliate; and Vice President of Resource Development for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. 

 

          I have also worked as a zookeeper.

 

          My graduate work includes a Masters in Organizational Dynamics from the University of Pennsylvania, and my Bachelors degree from Florida International University is in Social Work, with a concentration in Community Organization. 

 

          I am an accredited Associate of the Institute for Independent Business and certified by the Entrepreneurial Training Institute of the NJ Economic Development Authority as a facilitator for small business planning, and I am a member of the NJ Nonprofit Consultants Collaborative.
