I’ve had the good fortune to run companies during winning streaks, but I also have the hard-won experience that comes from leading companies through very difficult times, and bringing them safely out the other side. I work well in complicated situations, and enjoy winning new business and then cultivating ongoing partnerships. I have deep experience with both venture capital and private equity sponsors.
In addition to my day job, I serve on the Board of Directors for Ellevation Education, a successful startup serving English Language Learners. Investors include Emerson Collective and Zuckerberg Education Ventures.
Previously, I was a member of the Board of Directors at BzzAgent, a successful word-of-mouth marketing company, from 2007 until its 2011 sale to Tesco. Investors included Flybridge and General Catalyst.
