In 1998 Stu and partner Tom McTamney opened Liberty Harley-Davidson in Rahway, NJ. In its' first two years the dealership achieved outstanding results:
• Named one of the "Top 100 Powersport Dealers in the USA"
• Received Harley-Davidson's coveted "Bar & Shield" award
• Named "Best Motorcycle Dealer in Central NJ" by readers of the Home News Tribune
• Received Harley-Davidson Financial Services President's Award
In 2001, Stu sold his interest in the business. Today Liberty Harley-Davidson still operates as one of the leading dealerships in the New York Metropolitan area.
During his years at Liberty Harley, Stu also served on the Dealers Advisory Board of Harley-Davidson Financial Services Inc, the wholly owned private bank which provides retail and wholesale financial services to Harley-Davidson dealers and retail customers.
In 1996 Stu concluded a 24 year career in banking which began as an entry level job wrapping coins in the money room of a small Atlantic City bank, and took Stu to the boardroom of one of the worlds largest international banks, National Westminster Bank PLC, known as NatWest.
NatWest, which was based in London, was the 7th largest bank in the world. With wholly owned banking subsidiaries in countries around the globe, a brokerage firm on Wall Street, one of the most exclusive private banks in the world (where the Queens' family banks) NatWest was a financial powerhouse. Though the NatWest name still exists as a brand, the company has been absorbed by RBS, the Royal Bank of Scotland.
For the majority of his banking career, Stu developed and managed NatWest's US ATM businesses, which were among the most profitable in the US.
The business included not only the traditional branch bank ATMs, but focused on high-volume high-value locations such as Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden, Trump Casinos, all the NJ Boardwalks, Staten Island Ferry, etc. Most of these highly profitable locations continue to be operated today (by Bank of America).
In 1994 when Stu decided to pursue opportunities with a Harley-Davidson business, the ATM business developed by he and his team was generating more than $20 million in annual revenues.
Stu also served as a Director of the New York Cash Exchange, an Advisory Board Member of the MAC Network, and an Advisor to Mellon Bank's Cashstream network.
