Professional Mediator

During Carmela’s time in the business world, she developed a vast skillset obtained by working in several different positions and industries. Having grown up in a family-owned business environment, Carmela has always been an entrepreneur at heart, and she has always had a passion for helping other businesses succeed.

During the late 2000s, as the economy began to face unprecedented challenges, Carmela found many of her friends and colleagues coming to her for advice on their careers and businesses they were starting. That’s when she decided to put her extensive corporate expertise to work by counseling others in the business world.

In 2011, Carmela founded FYI Business Consulting & Outsource Services, a business advisory, social media, and project management firm that provides full project management support; including expert guidance with important areas such as contract management, vendor disputes, and employee disputes. With Carmela’s assistance, organizations are able to maximize operational efficiencies and position themselves for greater success.

Carmela has in-depth knowledge of numerous areas of organizational operation, this includes but is not limited to:

  • Sales & Marketing Management
  • New Business Development
  • Margin Improvement
  • Cost Containment
  • Financial Management
  • Talent Development
  • Turnaround Leadership
  • Continuous Process Improvement
  • Culture Changes
  • Multi-Site Operations
  • Complex Contract Negotiation
  • Dispute Resolution

Carmela is accomplished in both private and corporate sector business practices. She is a results-oriented business mediator with an unrelenting passion for challenging the status quo and a firm believer in continuing education and personal development that moves us beyond the barriers that limit our effectiveness. Carmela believes in examining the “big picture”, taking into account all pertinent factors to develop win-win solutions that are mutually beneficial to all parties involved.

Because of her extensive business and workplace experience, Carmela is able to help clients tackle even the most complex matters that may arise in a corporate setting. Clients also appreciate her compassionate and down-to-earth approach, which puts them at ease while dealing with complicated and highly challenging issues.

Divorce Mediator

As a divorce mediator, Carmela adopts an approach that is similar to the way she handles professional mediation. She understands that this is a highly emotional time for divorcing couples, but she also understands that there are many important issues couples need to resolve. Carmela has the unique ability to help spouses get past the issues they are stuck on and work cooperatively toward developing peaceable and workable resolutions.

Her savvy business sense is another attribute couples appreciate. And this is particularly true when there are complex financial matters that need to be tackled; such as family-owned or closely held businesses or franchises, real estate investments, stocks, bonds, stock options, international investments, and unique assets. Carmela has a very strong working knowledge of these areas, and when necessary, she can also call on one of our in-house specialists when more in-depth expertise is needed.

Whatever type of mediation you need (both professional and personal), Carmela has the experience, skills, and dedication to ensure a positive and productive result.
