Mills currently serves as Chief Revenue Officer at Gengo, the leading technology platform in the multilingual content and communication domain. Before Gengo, Mills served as a Vice President at Criteo where he built a world-class team and executed the go-to-market strategy that put them on the map in the U.S. Jeff held leadership positions during his 8 year tenure at Yahoo! starting in 1998, SideStep (acquired by Kayak in late 2008), and Sojern, the leading travel media company.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Successful Internet companies are founded by technical engineers who build amazing products. Product focus consistently remains the most important factor in building scalable companies. When faced with the dilemma of building a revenue business, while continuing to build a world-class product, founders often fail.

I enable the product and engineering specialists the ability to concentrate on the product while I build and execute the go to market strategy that drives the revenue side of the business.

Custom building the go to market strategy with monetization ideas, a pipeline of targets, marketing materials, and then implement it.

Companies that grow from $0 to $100M+, do not outsource their revenue business. Instead they build it in house with a team of dedicated professionals that live and breath their business. I am the guy that gets you there quickly, strategically and efficiently, while preparing the company for the long-term growth ahead.
