After 25+ years as an "operator" at various startups, many of which have grown into scale-ups, I'm seeking to utilize my deep cross-functional operating experience and my experience as an angel investor and startup advisor to join and impact a venture organization and/or work fractionally as functional area executive with startups and scale-ups.
My style and ethos is to marry thought with action and apply technology to solve problems and meet user/market needs. First, I work to strategically understand and define the "why" and the "what" and ensure that it's connected to business goals and user/market needs. Then, I lead and manage cross-functional teams to craft the "how", determine the "when" and execute on the delivery of technology solutions to clients and commercial technology products to markets.
In pursuing my focus at different companies and across various industries I have been able to successfully:
I am extremely well-rounded, versatile, and entrepreneurial and think of myself as a cross-functional "business athlete". I think and act strategically and like operating through a player/coach model. I especially enjoy companies and SaaS business applications and holistic solutions that help businesses and organizations improve process and efficiency, customer relationships and engagement, marketing/sales and data-driven decision making.
