Conceived and created the world's largest Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) company in mobile, running a location exchange and privacy platform that allowed enterprises to locate over 5 Billion mobile and networked devices for any vertical and any location use case. Built in the cloud and accessed via the most robust carrier-grade APIs in mobile, Locaid located assets, workers, fleets, packages, IoT devices and mobile consumers for companies such as FedEx, American Express, Penske, Caesars, GTECH, salesforces.com, Coke and hundreds more. Frequent speaker on innovation and served in leadership roles on governing associations including the CTIA, MMA and IAPP. Winner of several mobile industry awards including Mobile Innovator of the Year in 2013 and Big Idea Award from the CTIA in 2012.
Locaid merged with LocationSmart in February of 2015, and I now serve on the Board of Directors, helping them become the worldwide Cloud Location Services market leader for connected devices, delivering the broadest reach and largest global footprint, with an extensive portfolio of privacy consent methods for easy end user adoption.
I serve on the Board of Directors and Audit Committee of Aratana Therapeutics, the world's leading pet therapeutics company focused on licensing, developing and commercializing innovative biopharmaceutical products for companion animals. Aratana believes that it can leverage the investment in the human biopharmaceutical industry to bring therapeutics to pets in a capital and time efficient manner. The Company's pipeline includes therapeutic candidates targeting pain, inappetence, cancer, viral diseases, allergy and other serious medical conditions. Aratana believes the development and commercialization of these therapeutics will permit veterinarians and pet owners to manage pets' medical needs safely and effectively, resulting in longer and improved quality of life for pets.
I was elected to the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the CTIA-The Wireless Association®, the international trade association representing the wireless telecommunications industry.
In May 2013, I won the CTIA B!G Idea Ingenious Innovator in Mobile Award and previously Locaid won the CTIA’s B!G Idea for Most Innovative Award and had been named a Fierce Wireless Top 15 Company among other accolades.
CTIA-The Wireless Association® is an international nonprofit membership organization that has represented the wireless communications industry since 1984. Membership in the association includes wireless carriers and their suppliers, as well as providers and manufacturers of wireless data services and products. The association advocates on behalf of its members at all levels of government. CTIA also coordinates the industry’s voluntary efforts to provide consumers with a variety of choices and information regarding their wireless products and services. This includes the voluntary industry guidelines; programs that promote mobile device recycling and reusing; and wireless accessibility for people with disabilities.
It's also my pleasure to serve on the Board of Trustees for the Drew School, in San Francisco.
Drew believes in teenagers - their ideas, their dreams, their opinion, and their potential. That’s why they’ve created a high school community that challenges the traditional definition of success and celebrates achievement one student at a time. The result is that their students develop into fascinating individuals who are sought after by colleges and who know themselves well when they step out into the world.
