Director of Strategy at Koombea
Internet | Greater Salt Lake City Area, US
I'm a digitally-minded business strategist, a connector, a mentor, and a creative thinker. Prior to my current role at Koombea, I founded and ran Granada Advisors, a strategy consulting firm, for about five years as well as a small digital strategy agency, Crux & Gage, with a few partners. Prior to that I was a two-time CFO (notably at www.thriftbooks.com) and spent time in New York, London, and Sydney, Australia as an investment banker with JPMorgan and Lehman Brothers where I worked with large multinationals on capital markets and M&A related transactions.
I excel at "riffing" with executives and entrepreneurs to uncover innovative approches to value creation and the crafting of meaningful engagement experiences on web and mobile platforms. My recent forays over the past few years into technology and design-oriented engagements have helped me develop a holistic approach (see: http://bit.ly/pm3VQe) to business design and modeling, brand architectures, and development in the digital ecosystem.
I love and excel at connecting the dots between people, ideas, and opportunities. I'm innately curious. I'm at my best when I can mentor, advise, and teach. I love meeting interesting people and exploring what is possible so let's connect!
