✔️ PUTTING SOFTWARE & DATA TO WORK, AT THE INTERSECTION OF BUSINESS & TECH
Entrepreneurs, CxOs, and VPs rely on me to improve their organization with better tools, data, and processes. Together we design and roll out solutions that align operations with strategy, remove bottlenecks, shed light on blind spots, and open up growth opportunities.
I've been selected by Upwork's Enterprise team as one of only a few Expert-Vetted talents, placing me among the top 1% consultants on the platform. Think of me as a seasoned business and technology co-pilot who will bring clarity to complex situations and help you make and execute the right choices. My skills include business intelligence, digital marketing, ecommerce, and B2B sales.
My clients appreciate the practical and incisive perspective I bring, gained through more than two decades of hands-on experience as an executive, entrepreneur, and adviser. I'm highly adaptable thanks to my varied track record working with large enterprises and small startups, across North America, South America, EMEA, and Asia/Pacific.
Because I've built a $1M+/year B2B online business from scratch with a 100% remote team, I know firsthand about bootstrapping, agility, and getting the most out of limited resources. And thanks to my work with large multinationals, I'm well versed in structure, processes, and scaling.
I'm familiar with many industries including retail/FMCG, software/tech, healthcare, education, manufacturing, real estate/construction/trades, energy/commodities, publishing/media, government, and aerospace/defense. Past and current clients include 3M, Koch Enterprises, HP, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Novo Nordisk, Procter & Gamble, and many more.
