with Real-World Experience
I break through the hype and overused buzz words to analyze your situation, offer practical strategies and drive defensible, profitable growth.
What I Do
I find digital opportunities.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting all industries - health tech, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, retail, supply chain.
At the same time, digital business models or “anything-as-a-service” (XaaS) are accelerating, driven by the "sharing economy" and the success of software-as-a-service business models.
I bring unique perspectives.
But what is IoT, and how do companies make money from it?
What really is XaaS, and how do companies adopt their business models to enjoy the benefits of XaaS?
How do the two intersect, to build recurring revenue flows, deep customer learning and delight, and enable further penetration?
I am the Secret Weapon you didn't know you needed.
I know what works, what doesn’t, what decisions to make, what problems to expect.
With over 25 years of executive strategy expertise in the “full stack” of technology businesses – networks, devices, services, software – I’ve created and executed credible, defensible strategies in leading companies around the world.
I am your stealth advisor for technology strategy and transformation.

When he was with Cisco, Todd had a great grasp of the financials, operations, and strategy of the Consumer Products Group, and applied his education and skills in detail -- not a simple thing to do. At Adobe, Todd again brought great knowledge and perspective about the company and the space, helped me figure out the pros and cons, and provided key introductions for my startup, seeking partnership opportunities.
CFO at MCG Health
Todd does some of the best, and most thoughtful analytical work you'll ever see, but more than that, he communicates results clearly and simply. Projects that Todd manages are well organized, and hit their deadlines. Todd has a strong work ethic, integrity, and a sense of humor that makes people want to work with him again.
CEO at AYRO Automotive Technologies
I worked closely with Todd on a Globalization Project at Linksys. Todd was instrumental in developing the methodology for evaluating global markets, as well as orchestrating the cross functional support needed to deliver on such an important initiative.
