I love building teams and companies. I think effective strategies come from deep immersion in data, and that great new products come from repeated experiments with customers.
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.
