Todd is a great "people leader" and technologist. I've worked closely with him for 2+ years and he's a personable, passionate and technology ... savvy executive leader, all-in-one. People genuinely loved working for Todd, and his tenacity to achieve goals filtered through to his employees.
Chase McAleese

The best way to describe Todd is as a whip-smart technologist that just knows how to get shit done quickly and perfectly. Whether it's setti ... ng up and optimizing a load-balanced production environment or rooting out bugs in code, Todd can jump into any situation and quickly come to an effective conclusion. Another thing I should mention is that even when you're not working with Todd in person he is almost always available to jump on a machine and fight fires from afar if need be. There is no doubt that Todd is a talented engineer, but his easy going personality and experience make him a great entrepreneur.

I worked with and for Todd at three stops: Voter.com, Pearson (when our group was was in a formative stage) and at cMarket (now BiddingForGo ... od). At each stage, Todd was the CTO/VP of Engineering, but his leadership and presence was broad and truly defined the culture of the group. He is the rare leader who is equal parts resourceful, pragmatic, strategic and inspiring. He is someone equally at home in the boardroom, at the whiteboard or in a server room. And with cloud computing dominating, he can focus more time with people!

Doug has started and run his own consulting business for 10 years now. He's grown it, managed it, likely cried and screamed for joy about it ... . As a solid technical operator, and now business guy... no doubt he'll continue with success.

Dan Deac
We worked together  •  Previously Executive Director - Business Intelligence and Performance Optimization, Graham Holdings.
Dan loves hard problems whose solutions make a difference to an organization. He's very personable, enjoys the team dynamic, but also demons ... trates enormous stamina to lock himself in a room and only exit when a solution is at hand.

Judith Colecchi
Vice President, Content Management, Activate Networks, Inc. Previously Program Manager, Partners Healthcare. Yale grad.
Judy's been there, done that. She knows how to navigate product management hurdles (tech challenges, internal consensus building, schedules, ... mishaps, etc.) like a pro. It's a fine dance to get a product out, on time, meeting the expectations of customers and internal management... and Judy waltzes right through it all.
