Executive, Coach, Entrepreneur and Angel Investor
I'm a globally experienced senior executive (CxO) with 20+ years in digital transformation. I co-founded start-ups and digital agencies including; Razorfish, Schematic, ARK Advisors and Prompt.ly . I have led business divisions for Samsung Electronics, the BBC and Associated Northcliffe Digital (DMGT owner of the Daily Mail) to award-winning levels of performance recognized by CES, GSMA, Techcrunch and the Wall Street Journal.
Named one of the Wired 100 in 2010, serial entrepreneur and executive I have a passion for technology & innovation. My superpowers fall into three silos, go to market strategy and execution, product management informed by design-centered thinking and the softer human skills so needed to build, fix and lead amazing organizations.
I've been informally coaching and advising entrepreneurs & executives for years including key staff in my organizations and founders of Ubergizmo, Exit Reality, Videoplaza, Viawear, Next New Networks and many others. Entrepreneurs I have advised have had better outcomes (exits, growth) and raised more successfully and at higher multiples than those who I invested in passively. As part of my own personal development, I began more formal training as an executive coach with CTI & Hudson Institute in January of 2017 and continue that work today with Evolution.
