I am looking for an operations and/or analytics focused role in a fast-paced AdTech organization where I can impact growth in an IC role or leading a small team.

I’m most impactful when:
• You need someone to figure out how to drive growth and operational excellence when the opportunity is net new, ill-defined or rapidly evolving

The kind of organization that would get the best from me is:
• A DSP, SSP (I’ve worked in both) or other organization that is looking for wide-ranging and comprehensive knowledge and expertise in AdTech

What are some of your key accomplishments?
• Created a Platform Partnerships Analytics function from scratch, first as an individual contributor and later building a team, as AOL Platforms (FKA Advertising.com) evolved from an ad network model into an industry leading Demand Side Platform driving $1B+ in annual revenue
• Created a Pricing and Yield function from scratch for the AOL SSP. After establishing my impact as an individual contributor, I built a team which grew net revenue dollars by 30% while at the same time efficiently consolidating 5 distinct ad platforms acquired through M&A into a single entity with $150M+ annual revenue
• Ideated and pitched the concept of investing in “Smart” features; once approved by Sr Leadership, collaborated with Product and Data Science to create Smart Request Throttling, which saved the company $5M in tech costs annually, and Smart Margin Optimization, which drove $1.5M in incremental net revenue

Where are you located or where would you like to work?
• Located in the Mid-Atlantic, would prefer an organization with a base in NYC where I can work remote and travel as much as is necessary to NY and/or client locations / other company offices

Anything else you’d like a potential employer to know?
• My 20+ year career with Advertising.com / AOL / Verizon Media / Yahoo ended in March, 2024 as a result of the company’s decision to deprecate their SSP and make 50% cuts across their AdTech business. I’m excited to “get back at it” with a company that’s committed to growth!
