Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks
I am an energetic and engaging product leader & general manager with 17+ years of operating experience, ranging from Product Management, Marketing & Business Development and Software Development. I have worked at across all business models: B2C, B2B2C, B2B & C2C, including 9 marketplaces & integration platforms. My last decade in Silicon Valley has been in intrapreneurial roles, ranging from building new businesses for Google, to launching Mercari Japan's international business. In between, I've led P&Ls of as large as $17B (at Walmart Labs) and managed teams as large as 9 direct reports (corresponding to a cross-functional leadership of 150 across engineering, product, design, ops). I am currently at SVB leading its digital transformation efforts. My first year here was focused on intraprenurial efforts building a zero-to-one product for startup ecosystem outside core-banking (currently in beta) and I am now applying my background in marketplaces, discovery & integrations to lead another emerging area of focus. I believe that great businesses are built with the following principles in mind: (a) Putting the customer first, (b) Keeping it simple and focus on making 1 or 2 things great, (c) Iterating rapidly, (d) Letting data drive decisions. I bring to the table a hands- on, collaborative leadership style combined with a powerful balance of creative problem-solving and disciplined general management skills.
