I am currently a member of Sand Hill Angels, a group of 100+ Silicon Valley individuals who invest in and mentor management teams in early stage companies. Separately, I provide advisory services to CEO's of young companies in Silicon Valley. As a guest lecturer at the Leavey School of Business undergraduate program at Santa Clara University and the MBA program at the University of San Francisco, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to engage with students and early in career individuals to talk about and learn from various experiences. I recently joined the EMBA/MBA Advisory Board at USF.
My wife and I are proud to serve on the Board of the Salvation Army in Silicon Valley, an organization that does phenomenal work in the communities of San Jose, Gilroy, Santa Clara and Sunnyvale. The organization offers a variety of services for the homeless, seniors, youth and families. Their programs touched over half a million people in the past year.
Having lived and worked in both the developed markets of Europe and North America and the high growth emerging markets of Asia, I offer a global perspective. I consider myself a passionate, collaborative and decisive leader that has consistently demonstrated the ability to set strategy, transform businesses, positively impact employee engagement and ensure resources are aligned to deliver the operational predictability required to achieve outstanding business results.
I was most recently CEO of Zero Motorcycles, the acknowledged world leader of electric motorcycles. Prior to that I was EVP Product Development and Operations at Control4 Corporation and had a 20+ year career at HP, including GM of the Consumer Desktop PC division, a $6B piece of the overall PC business at the time.
