Bio

Generically I enjoy problem solving and building great teams. I've just joined Diligent, the leading platform for modern governance. Previously at Salesforce I focused on growth, customer experience, operational excellence, digital transformation partnerships and scaling the company. I manage Business Technology (BT, aka IT), Global Sales Strategy, Corporate Strategy, Data Governance, Pipeline and Distribution Data Science, Channels & Alliances (Partners, ISV), Industries, Enablement, Office of Innovation and Customer Experience (CX).

At Visa I ran IP strategy and business development, and before that managed corporate services (CPO, P2P, Real Estate, etc.). Before Visa, I was an entrepreneur, co-founding a subscription and transaction-based financial services technology company (SaaS before SaaS was a thing!) which we grew and eventually sold to Knight Capital. Prior to that I left Bain & Co. to be CEO of a startup software company that we sold to IBM.
