Key Accomplishments

Over the course of my career I have played a critical role in bringing large scale consumer and business applications to users around the world. During my 10 years working for Yahoo!, I was a formative member of their international team, and managed a variety of community platforms and applications. Most recently, as Chief Product Officer at SureSale, I led a cross-departmental team to launch a comprehensive certified marketing program targeting the automotive industry. This program included web and mobile applications, multiple industry integrations and partnerships, and myriad aspects of the automotive business for both dealers and private sellers.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

As a founder I bring a breadth of experience spanning multiple verticals, technologies, platforms and business models. Most importantly, I come with a passion for dissecting complex problems, forming consensus and turning ideas into action. I am well adapted to both technology discussions and board presentations and have performed nearly every business function over the course of my career.

We worked together
Chris has an incredible combination of skills. He is an excellent and classically trained product executive. He just thinks outside the bo ... x about business applications and has a creative and technical background to make things a reality. He also has excellent business judgement and is excellent in meetings and selling deals. He has the experience and maturity that is required as an entrepreneur.
Wendy Kangataran
We worked together
Chris is a rare talent who can excel in many areas. From overseeing product development to understanding complex operational business functi ... ons, his wide breadth of knowledge and analytical mindset set him apart from other entrepreneurs who have the creativity and passion but lack the experience and knowledge to back it up. He isn't afraid to get his hands dirty and also has the critical ability to view a product objectively during all stages of development and will employ creative problem solving and efficiently lead a team towards making necessary changes.
