My role

I drive the strategy, execution and delivery of Conversant’s Engineering teams. Engineering is responsible for the development and delivery of the Conversant One-to-One Relationship Engine (Core) platform, all Conversant products, the tools to manage and execute the platforms and the collection and processing of all data assets.

My story

I have been at the forefront of software and product development of Platform as a Service (PaaS) technologies throughout my entire career. For the last 25+ years, my primary focus was, and continues to be, on the development and expansion of large platforms with heavy customer interaction. Prior to joining Conversant in 2012, I was a senior director of software and product development at Intercall. There, I was responsible for the development and operations of the largest global audio conferencing platform and authored or was part of 33 patents in the conferencing and collaboration space.
