    Summary

    Achievements reflect my abilities. I took new cloud app ZipShare.com from concept to spec, to Indian contractors for development, Connecticut team for QA, public beta and successful commercial launch. I segmented WinZip, a $32M product, leading to the creation of an Enterprise version with FIPS 140-2 power, generating over $1.2M in new sales on launch year. I created a long-term vision for WinZip, taking it from compression utility to a multi-platform local and cloud file management and sharing app that garnished 5 star reviews from the likes of CNET (http://download.cnet.com/WinZip/3000-2250_4-10003164.html), Softpedia and PC World. I modernized the WinZip brand with a new Wordmark and icon. I saved Pinnacle Studio, a world-renown consumer video editing product, from disaster by embarking on an aggressive outreach program to key stakeholders, generating goodwill and positive reviews in all markets, particularly Europe. I was a key contributor to the creation of a new root domain - .POST by building the financial business case that resulted in its approval by ICANN. Earlier in my career, I was a highly successful sales account executive and director, winning numerous performance awards. This means that as a Product Manager and Marketer, I have the deepest understanding for what Sales needs to get the job done. If you’re looking for real excellence in Product Management and Marketing, you’ve found it here.
