I launched my tech career with a Silicon Valley startup, Palm, about 20 years ago. Ever since, I have focused on delivering market-winning technology products/services to the world’s two biggest consumer markets, the US and Western Europe – and to emerging/global markets.  

Following my role with Palm and related smartphone startup, Handspring, Nokia recruited me to Europe in 2003. 

In Europe, I’ve had P&L responsibility for business units in the world’s largest technology, mobile communications, and mobile phone manufacturing companies:

•          Samsung

•          Vodafone

•          Nokia

I also served on the Board of Symbian, Ltd., an early smartphone OS developer, and have been an advisor to several global technology companies.

I led Samsung’s European Enterprise Business Team (ten-figure P&L), European Product Innovation Team, and European Media Solutions Center. My role was two-fold:

I planned and implemented an organizational transformation that produced 25%, ten-figure sales growth in less than a year. I ensured customer-centricity in building content services and emerging technology into Samsung’s products. 

I left Samsung in late 2015 to expand my work to advisory and consultancy opportunities with the objective to:

Advise new technology businesses. Join a corporate board. Coach business leaders. Speak about technological  transformation and leadership. Continue my international development and community service work. 

In 2020, I co-founded Impostor Breakthrough which was dedicated to working with executives, entrepreneurs and their organizations to break through the Impostor Syndrome and elevate Executive Presence. 

In 2021, following on to the success of our work at Impostor Breakthrough and with the launch of our new book Composure: The Art of Executive Presence, I co-founded Elevate Group LLC. The book Composure: The Art of Executive Presence is at the core of the programs run at Elevate Group.
