Executive management in digital media, consumer services.

I help small and large organizations design their go to market, monetization and operating strategies.

I advise technology companies in their funding and exit strategies. I advise the larger companies in finding the right technology company to complete a solution portfolio.

I mentor CEOs and high potential individuals who need a confidential sounding board in the solitude of their demanding functions.

C level executive involved with platforms now powering more than 250 million consumers' TV experience worldwide: OpenTV (IPO in 1999), Liberate (IPO in 1999, then acquired by Comcast and Seachange), Watchwith (investment by Samsung, Sony-Gracenote and Motorola).

Beyond the technical and expertise aspect of each project, lies the human factor which is essential to the realization of those successes.

Understanding, listening, inspiring, motivating and leading humans to realize their potential in an organization is where my passion lies.
