I help Startups grow into Big Companies, and Big Companies to be more like Startups.
I've spent the past 19 years working with startups + Big Companies focused on creating new growth opportunities via partnerships and new lines of business.
I was the Vice President of Business Development & Services at WeWork, and prior to that Head of Business Development at SumAll. I played a variety of roles in Marketing, BD, and Partnerships over a long career at American Express and got my start slinging chemicals at Dow. I also started a social cooking events company called Hot Pot Culinary Events, but that's a whole 'nother story.
I have taught workshops to thousands of students and written a best-selling book called What, Exactly, Is Business Development.
I am currently the Founder and CEO of Firneo, a community-building company that helps people and companies thrive in the future of work.
