President’s Bio




East Coast Consulting Group LLC

Michael F Stara is President of East Coast Consulting Group, a consulting firm specializing in educational, strategic, and marketing programs for financial services institutions. ECC’s specialty is developing courses that improve decisions made by professionals at those institutions where the extension of credit is involved. Mr. Stara is an affable and entertaining instructor, who has the ability to make complex concepts easy to understand, and to tailor each session to allow for varying experience levels in the audience.

He has traveled extensively throughout the country educating financial services professionals. Much of this experience stems from his role as a member of the faculty of RMA, a Philadelphia-based educational association for the financial services industry. The eleven courses he helped develop and teaches are concerned with successfully analyzing credit issues and marketing to various targeted groups, such as medical practices and high net worth individuals.

From 1983 to 1996, Mr. Stara held several credit/lending, financial analysis, and management positions at Mellon Bank, NA. As a result, he is especially well versed in the operation and products of financial service institutions.

He also served as a member of the professional staff of Ernst and Young, a world-renowned provider of accounting and management consulting services, from 1979 to 1983.

A CPA, Mr. Stara received a Masters of Management degree from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School in 1979 and a Bachelors of Business degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1978.
