Experience and Purpose
I am a results-driven leader passionate about creating positive change through technology and creating purpose-driven teams and organizations. My corporate experience includes launching over 50 successful global products and programs at Microsoft, where I co-founded Office Live, led SB innovation at MSN, and led global sales and marketing to small businesses and mid-market, at Yahoo as Global VP of Product, ABB (Latinamerica), and Xerox. I co-founded several successful startups, including Giving Tech Labs, VidaNyx, X4Impact, Giving Compass Network, Suvotek, Optio3 (acquired by CoreStack), and Global Market Insite (acquired by Kantar).
This experience gave me a unique perspective on innovation in the business world in the broader context of social impact, and I can identify and capitalize on new opportunities. I am passionate about making a difference in the world.
I believe in building diverse and purpose-driven teams with clear goals and data-informed strategies that drive innovation and achieve the best possible outcomes. I have a proven track record of building teams that are not only diverse but also committed to a common purpose, which in turn drives better results.
Let's work together to unleash your potential and make a meaningful impact.
