Experienced entrepreneurial commercial executive with proven track record in digital media and adtech sales and business development.

Most recently, commercial lead on a Pre Series A raise of £2.4M for Trint in May 2017. I have access to high net worth angel investors and a network of London based VC's.

Senior sales experience in online media, video, content and adtech - commercial positions at VC Media, Doubleclick - Google and Piksel.

Founder @Vidify (2008-2015), as well as several successful interim projects advising startups / collaborating with product and technical leadership / co founders.

Experienced across several growth driving business functions (sales, marketing, business development, product management), helping SaaS/tech led startups refine business strategy, value proposition and commercial models.

I'm experienced in creating and implementing fast growth customer acquisition and retention programmes for SaaS based business models.

Passionate about working with smart, ambitious people who are committed to making a positive difference.

As a consultant/advisor/investor, I can work with you / your team on initial business launch strategy and proposition development, to business model innovation, creating an investment model and early stage partnerships, to creating and implementing revenue growth / customer acquisition strategies that scale.
