Brett is a strong product visionary and seasoned marketer whose expertise is online and mobile consumer acquisition in international markets.

Most recently he was VP of Marketing at SkyGrid, an early stage Silicon Valley mobile app startup. Brett was responsible for all marketing activities with a focus on driving user growth for the iOS and Android apps.

Prior to SkyGrid, Brett was the Managing Director of Europe for Ancestry.com. He started up the European operations from scratch and launched all of their European country websites, as well as led the global mobile app launch across 20+ countries.

Before that, he led Online Acquisition Marketing for AOL's newly launched premium services which included Voice and Messaging products.
