One of the quickest ways to undermine a product’s success is neglecting to invest enough attention in your product. For startups, the challenge is even greater—founders are frequently spread too thin.Bringing an experienced product leader on board can create significant impact rapidly. With my background across diverse markets—from startups to Fortune 500 companies—and technologies ranging from AI to hardware, I swiftly diagnose and address product, team, and process challenges.
