How I work With Startups
Bob Van Orden
Technology Business Development Executive
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.
Capital Markets Consultant
Todd tore companies' business models to shreds and rebuilt them as fantastically detailed financial models. He valued the businesses using rigorously objective methodologies and then stood by his conviction calls no matter how unpopular they were.
Financial Services Business Leader
One of the best I have ever worked with. A very solid strategic mind and a very practical individual, it was a pleasure to work with Todd on a few projects.
Founder at Happy Hummingbird
Todd brings an impressive background of experience to any job: a Kellog MBA, two stints in the Boston Consulting Group, Morgan Stanley equity research experience, and finally private consulting in China. Todd also always brings another strong asset to the table: a sense of humor.

what i don't do
I don’t build full IT strategies, or capabilities. There are many great providers for these services; I can advise you on who to use, and how to get the most out of your relationship with them.
I don’t tell you what you want to hear, I tell you what you need to hear. I’m not the person to turn to for validation and internal selling of existing ideas. I am the person to turn to for trusted, honest, confidential advice on what works, what doesn’t, what challenges you will face, and how you can move beyond them.
I don’t manage your teams. I don’t have the bandwidth, and there are again many great providers for these services. I work directly with you, advising you through your strategy and transformation process.
