This blog is for people who share a passion for leadership, management and the quest for constant and never-ending personal and professional growth!
Over the past twenty years, I’ve been on a journey, spending countless hours reading, researching and incorporating into practice many of the techniques on these topics. I hope to share my personal experiences from what I’ve learned, as well as point you to the resources and tools I’ve found most valuable. In looking back, I’ve made more mistakes than I care to remember. However, I have grown from those mistakes and have figured out how to improve with each and every new challenge. My path has truly been from an over-confident individual contributor to a more humble and intentional leader. And yet even I as a write this blog today, I realize there’s still more to learn and grow from.
Professionally, I’ve spent the bulk of my career focused on bridging technology with business processes to provide maximum value for my clients. In my role as a manager and leader, I’ve been responsible for building and growing various operational functions, including: consulting, education services, customer support and information technology programs. More recently, I began to work in a new and developing area of technology delivery – customer success. In this evolving field, I’m responsible for managing our customer’s overall ownership experience, which oversees roughly $180M in annual recurring revenue.
Over my career, I’ve managed both individual contributors and managers of small and large organizations. I’ve navigated through periods of rapid hiring, as well as painful (but needed) layoffs. I’ve also led through organizational uncertainty brought about by mergers & acquisitions (on both sides).
And while I love my work, it is not the most important thing in my life. That position belongs to my family. I’ve been married to my wife, for fifteen years. We have one son and one daughter. We live outside of San Francisco, California. My passions when I’m not working include: playing tennis, reading, writing, running, and photography.
If you just can’t stand it and want to know a little more about my work history – you can check my profile out on LinkedIn.
