Leveraging 25 years of experience, I recruit, develop and lead digitally-forward organizations to develop thoughtful products that enhance life, work and play. I've founded companies and worked at Fortune 100 companies to connect the dots between people and technology.
My approach to transformation is grounded in a view of both the company objectives and the customer's experience simultaneously. I offer a unique fusing of design, product & software development along with a serious penchant for problem-solving creativity.
We are a company of automotive experts, with offices in the US, UK, Germany and Canada. You may know us as the global leader in classic car insurance but we’ve long since moved beyond insurance to offer so much more. I am leading a team that is developing some of the most innovative digital experiences for automotive enthusiasts - both online and physical.
Prior to MGM, I was the Vice President, Global Products at Starbucks. I led the design, product management, engineering and test teams that developed all of the company's consumer-facing experiences.
While at Starbucks I had the idea to create a global approach to designing and building apps across our 72 markets. Our team set to work to create the first international mobile design kit at a scale never before seen retail.
I started at Starbucks working in China. From Shanghai, I created the technology organization and outlined a plan to execute the finest digital experiences in the country. We started with a mobile strategy and developed the most popular retail application in China.
