Strong strategic leader with executive experience in the technology and information sector. My diverse background allows me to effortlessly span across strategy, marketing, product development, and engineering. At Mckinsey, I led sales, product, and organizational transformations of information companies. This experience led to my role at Elsevier, where as Head of Technology I was responsible for the product and technology reorganization required to migrate towards digital revenues, including M&A strategy. Part of this strategy was the acquisition of London based startup Mendeley, which I have been leading over the last 2 years. I found the results oriented, hands on operational work required to turnaround an organization (big and small) very stimulating. My entrepreneurial and consulting background allows me to align strategy with results oriented, “hands on” operational work required to deliver results quickly. Being part of a high impact, fast-paced, results oriented team is where I find myself at ease. • Responsible for P&L, operations, product strategy, and running product and engineering teams • M&A: including setting strategic direction, target selection, and directing acquisition and financial due diligence • Entrepreneur background and proven track record running and scaling up startups • Hands on global experience on both developed and emerging markets (e.g., UK, South Korea, US, Colombia) Specialties: Internet/Media • M&A • Corporate Strategy • Product management • Software development • Entrepreneurship • Cloud • Big data • Machine Learning • Digital marketing • Team BuildingSVP / Global Product and Technology (Mendeley.com) @ Led successful acquisition and integration of London startup (www.Mendeley.com) Responsible for managing product and engineering teams, growing team from 50 to 150+ employees and executing strategy.
