A global technology executive for private or public companies that leads with a measurable and quantitative methodology that has lead to multiple exits as CEO, turn-arounds at public and private companies, and multiple additional exits as an advisor / interim CEO.
The key strengths and skill sets that I use to grow, transform, or turn-around a business – •Strategy, Communication, •Execution. In other words, figure out where to go, make sure everyone knows where you are going and wants to go with you, and then do everything necessary to get there.
The strategy and operational plan is always based on Market, Product, and Team. Once you have a strategy and the right plan, execution is truly everything.
Extensive global experience having sold products worldwide and led organizations with large teams in US, China, Ukraine, Russia, India, UK, Portugal, Poland, France, and Israel. A key strength has been an ability to adapt existing technologies / products and sell them into new markets such as China (US product) and the US (non-US product).
Private company experience: (3 exits)
Founding and non-founding CEO at venture-backed private companies at Chicory Systems (very accretive exit to Parthus), Conformative Systems (accretive exit to Intel), Jelastic (still private), and Tonomi (acquired by Grid Dynamics).
