20-years of executive leadership roles for GE, Qualcomm and Insulet have taught me that whereas technical expertise is important, it’s people skills that are a leader’s most important asset. The common denominator that builds and sustains a business is the skill of optimizing the contributions of the organization’s people. Over the years, I have honed my innate ability to make sense of the business chaos while creating an insulated, safe, and fun environment in which “breakthrough teams” can thrive. I am a strategic visionary who leverages my highly technical knowledge-base and strong business acumen to start, turn-around, and lead technology-based businesses.
