I am passionate about working with innovative companies to drive value.
Working with both Fortune 500 and Startups; I generate collaborative, results driven working relationships. With experience in the IT Outsourcing marketplace with Siemens Information Technology Services and Capgemini Outsourcing, I have expertise in complex solutions selling, project management, and business development processes.
For the last 5 years I have worked in the Toronto Startup community, connecting entrepreneurs with opportunity. I am the leader of the Business Development efforts of Coral CEA an Enterprise Data Integration Startup with over $9m of funding. We have also placed over $2m of Government Grants, at the earliest stages, with over 70 Ontario Software Startups since April 2011. These companies have produced 3 exits (AlgoAnywhere to 500px, Pilot.me to Shopify, and Openera to LiveQos), 1 IPO (Memex TSX-V OEE), and over $20m of follow on funding.
I live in downtown Toronto with my wife Steph, after growing up in Halifax. I earned a BA in Political Science & History from the University of Western Ontario, as well as a Project Management Certificate from the University of Toronto. I am active advisor at INcubes, a founding advisor at Launch180, and board member of East Coast Connected.
