Award-winning public and private company Board Director and former 4X CEO with a track record of successfully leading multiple international technology businesses to extremely high levels of growth, profitability and shareholder return. My multi-faceted career disrupting markets and value chains has given me a passion for digital transformation using deep data analytics, AI/machine learning, and connected services. As an operational leader, I led both early stage and F100 organizations through $2B in revenues across a variety of technology sectors – enterprise software, SaaS/Cloud, big data & analytics, cybersecurity, digital transformation, communications, mobile, and hardware – skills which I leverage today to assist companies as a board director and trusted CEO advisor and coach. I am an experienced Chair of Compensation and Governance Committees, and an experienced Audit Committee member.

I founded BusinessExcelleration to help companies at strategic inflection points reach their growth objectives. I serve on the boards of Ribbon Communications, Liquidity Services, and PriceSmart, and serve on the advisory board to the Princeton School of Engineering & Applied Science.

As Chairman and CEO, I led the industry’s most successful communications company turnaround, taking Aspect Communications from a substantial operating loss to record revenues, record operating profit, and record cash flow, and as CEO, led three venture-backed companies to successful exits. I served as senior vice president at Oracle reporting directly to Larry Ellison and was responsible for Oracle’s open systems group, which I led through ultra-high growth to nearly $2B in revenue, and subsequently led Oracle’s next-generation products group.

I’m a National Association of Corporate Directors 2016 Directorship 100 Honoree and an NACD Board Leadership Fellow, and was named by Financial Times to its 2013 Top 50 Digital Directors list.
