Co-founder of Greenhouse - a modern, smart recruiting platform. Greenhouse automates and simplifies the best practices for recruiting top talent, continuously monitors your recruiting activity, and automatically suggests improvements. From 2005-2011, I was General Manager of International at, the leading destination on the Internet for new and expectant parents. Under my management, BabyCenter grew from a US business with a small UK site to a global business present in 21 markets, while maintaining strong financials and reaching over 25 million unique visitors per month. I had global P&L responsibility for this worldwide media business, including sales, marketing, editorial, product and technology. Additionally, I led BabyCenter’s efforts in build mobile health applications in emerging markets and have consulted on the topic over the last few months. Babycenter was acquired by Johnson & Johnson. Previously, I was a member of the executive team at Merced Systems, an enterprise performance management software company. In this role, I was responsible for the vision and execution of the entire product, and for leading the deployment to early customers. Merced Systems was recently acquired by NICE for $170MM. I initially served as the first Product Manager of BabyCenter, when it was founded in 1997, leading the development of both the main site and the e-commerce business.
