Since 2001, I have been fortunate to help start-up, found, fund, and build businesses along side of some of Chicago's most successful tech entrepreneurs. Learning, leading, and operating with the best technology builders in the business, my teams have built and accelerated world-class SaaS products and platforms, unstoppable sales and development teams, and innovative and scaleable omni-channel marketing strategies that have stood the test of time.
Some of those businesses have been acquired, other's have gone public, and some are just beginning.
Accelerating your business and choosing the right partners, employees, and strategies for growth will not define you, but it will define your opportunity and trajectory for growth. If you can leverage the experience of others who have already been there, you can leap forward faster and avoid costly mistakes.
I like solving problems and I truly enjoy working with my clients to cut through the noise and focus on the highest value activities that will make the greatest impact.
I am a husband to my amazing wife Kristen, a father to my busy identical twin boys, Van and John Paul, a baseball (tee-ball actually) coach, a musician, an active investor, and a lover of all things food and wine. I am a tinkerer, a builder, a tester, and a connector. I look forward to learning about you and your business goals.
