Director, Business Development & Partnerships

With an extensive background that spans leadership roles across the crypto, cybersecurity, and global sales sectors, combined with a formidable network of connections (over 22,000 LinkedIn connections and over 3,500 crypto-specific contacts), I feel overly confident I can fulfill any growth needs your organization desires. I bring a wealth of experience and a proven track record of driving revenue growth, expanding market presence, and fostering strategic partnerships.

At System 9, I spearheaded initiatives that saw a 150% increase in trading volume, broadening our client base significantly. My role at Hacken further emphasizes my team management skills, where I led a global sales team and a 60% growth in sales revenue. At Crypto.com and CoinMarketCap I oversaw a sales pipeline, and at CMC specifically, a pipeline exceeding $20M.

My "hunter" sales mentality is balanced with the ability to cultivate and nurture relationships, ensuring not just immediate wins but sustained business growth. This approach has been instrumental in securing strategic accounts, my largest being a $75M deal with Honda Manufacturing while at DSS, which I worked on for over 2 years.

I am particularly passionate about contributing to startups and innovative companies poised for growth, preferably in the crypto/blockchain space. My technical acumen and deep immersion in the crypto and blockchain sectors enable me to bridge gaps between cutting-edge technology and strategic business development opportunities, driving adoption and securing a competitive edge.
