Passionate about building international businesses. Leadership and experience building online and mobile businesses for early stage companies and major industry leaders. A broad global network and first-hand experience in global business culture having worked in nearly every major media market.
At 22, I met George Soros who asked me if I wanted to go to Ukraine to help his foundation bring technical assistance to the former Soviet Union. His team introduced me to the Deputy Minister of Finance who was building a trade office for western businesses to find joint venture partners with recently privatized Ukrainian businesses. I developed the first guidelines & procedures for establishing business in Ukraine and a DB matching prospective companies with major brands from Europe, North America, Asia and Latin America. Besides working with brands like Pepsi, DEC and Apple, I helped Tampax partner to build the first western tampon factory in Ukraine.
