Areas of Expertise

E-Commerce

Launching many successful commerce experiences and building top internet retail sites generating billions of dollars in sales, Kevin is a leader in the eCommerce space.

Technology

Running large agile technology departments is a must to scale any business today. Understanding the best ways to scale teams, hire quality engineers, resolve technical debt and tackle long backlogs is more an art than a science.

Product

Knowing what to build with an eye on customer experience, building a comprehensive roadmap that can be accomplished by multiple empowered teams with managed dependencies, while still experimenting into new product ideas is the key to success.

Startups

Startups are everywhere, but without financing, executive team building, financial business modeling and a streamlined/focused plan, yours won’t make the cut. Kevin has experience from both startup leadership and venture capital.
