cropped-image.jpgI really enjoy being a Mentor and Board Advisor to the C-suite of innovative growth companies. In my early career, I had a decade in US vendor corporate management followed by twenty-plus years as a Founder/CEO of London and Silicon Valley-based start-ups such as PhoneMe, NicheGnat and Zebtab. These amazing experiences equip me to guide, connect and maximise opportunities for clients in challenging emerging markets.

I was the Founder/CEO of PhoneMe the first Global Internet-enabled Toll-Free Telephony service (Web Callback). I managed cross-functional teams in London, Silicon Valley and Boston that delivered the highest level of sales and customer service in this market. Major accounts globally such as HP, Compaq, Dell, Sun Microsystems, Orange, Virgin Atlantic, Financial Times and NatWest utilised PhoneMe. We raised $5M in venture funding to scale PhoneMe to the market-leading brand for Web Callback which led to a Silicon Valley exit.

I was also lucky enough to be the Founder/CEO at Zebtab (ManUtd desktop) that built the first aggregated widget platform internationally for sports and news media, NicheGnat that championed web conferencing in Europe and Interim Edge the UK’s first virtual management company focused on the Technology sector.

Before my entrepreneurial career, I was in Telecom Sales with ITT/STC in the City of London during the “Big Bang”. Then went on to launch Chernikeeff Telecommunications (Acquired by Dimension Data) as Head of Sales and Marketing and constructed profitable turnarounds at both Norbain Micro & Tandon Corp in the personal computer markets as Sales and Marketing Director.

I managed to fit in a full-time Masters Degree in International Business at the University of Bristol and created a great trusted network through the extensive study periods at Harvard, MIT & UC Berkeley which were part of the programme.
