The New Business.com

When I joined Business.com last month I mentioned we would have some news coming soon. Well, soon is today and I’m excited to announce we’re officially launching the new Business.com — including a new site, new company identity, new features and an expanded product line. For my Media, Marketing and Tech geek pals I wanted […]

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 […]

What’s Next?

For the last 6 years I have led a team that has transformed a declining print-centric business into a fast-growing $200 million digital media, live event and marketing services behemoth, otherwise known as UBM TechWeb.

It’s the heart that inspires drive, loyalty […]

Running Media

This month marks my 10th anniversary as a runner. In March of 2001 while walking around a mall in New York with my family I wandered into a running store. On a whim I bought a pair of running shoes. At the time I played tennis regularly and was reasonably active. I had bad knees […]

Where Is Your Social Network?

I’ve been fascinated by the growth of social networking. From Facebook to Linkedin to Twitter, we’re seeing amazing levels of engagement. This engagement is remaking the media landscape too. I’ve struggled to embrace the term social networking though. Felt too restrictive in a business environment and too closely tied to the early pioneering brands like […]
