Key Accomplishments

Entrepreneurial media strategy and biz-dev executive with 15+ years in digital media (Time Inc., NewsCorp) and software (FAST, Inktomi, Peppercoin). MIT MBA, BS from Georgetown.

At ERA, I advise digital media and e-commerce start-ups on market-entry and social media strategies, media industry value propositions, product roadmaps and partnership opportunities.

Previously, at Time Inc. and News Corporation, I launched and managed ad-supported, subscription and e-commerce digital services, monetizing content in new, valuable ways. I negotiated and managed multi-million dollar strategic partnerships and licensing agreements. I led cross-functional teams to define and deliver web, mobile, tablet and digital television products.

At FAST Search & Transfer, I led a software business focused on media, advertising and e-commerce search. Tripled revenue to ~$100MM, leading to acquisition by Microsoft for $1.4B. Negotiated license agreements and managed partnerships with Comcast, Disney, Hearst, News Corporation and Time Warner. Defined go-to-market strategy for media, entertainment and communications markets, and led growth to 300+ person field organization, across direct sales and channel sales and marketing.
