What’s Next: It’s Business.com

Last May, after 6 great years at UBM – and a decade helping legacy media businesses adapt to a new reality defined by the Internet – I decided to step back.  I wanted to really explore the trends that continue to reshape media, marketing and technology before deciding what to do next. Over the past months I’ve talked to dozens of great companies and individuals, learned a great deal and had a great time.

Today I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve joined Business.com as CEO. I couldn’t be more excited to join the new leadership team at Business.com and the family of JMI Equity companies. So why Business.com?

JMI Equity acquired Business.com in order to create the leading online source for business product and services purchasing. They’ve attracted a world-class team and established a new headquarters for the company in Carlsbad, California, a fast growing tech center in north county San Diego. Business.com is a brand, company and team of people that is uniquely positioned to serve buyers looking for products and services and marketers looking to reach, engage and sell to them.

In the next few months we will be rolling out a new site, new features and other plans for growing Business.com. I’m excited to be a part of the team and look forward to sharing more about our plans and what I learn along the way.
