I serve as the Chief Executive Officer of a privately-held media company that includes Bank Director, DirectorCorps and FinXTech. Through multiple platforms, my team delivers insights on current and emerging leadership issues to top executives and their boards. We do so through annual conferences — for instance, Acquire or Be Acquired — exclusive networking events, digital services, editorial products and research reports.
In addition, I host “Looking Ahead,” a digital series produced in conjunction with Nasdaq, that surfaces key industry and cross industry strategy issues for executive teams and their boards.
In my role, I am responsible for:
- Setting the company’s strategic direction;
- Aligning the organization;
- Leading our top team;
- Working with our board; and
- Representing the company to our constituents.
A 1999 graduate of Washington & Lee University, where I was a four-year letterman on the varsity baseball team, I earned an MBA from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. My financial and technology background includes positions with Board Member, Inc., Bank Director’s previous company which is now part of the New York Stock Exchange, and Computech, a Bethesda, Maryland-based information technology firm now part of NCI (NASDAQ: NCIT).

Recently, I’ve been invited to share my perspectives on the state — and future — of the financial industry at conferences like the Consumer Bankers Association’s CBA Live, the Association for Financial Technologies annual Summit, FIG Partners CEO Forum and Washington & Lee’s Entrepreneurship Summit. I’ve been included in articles on the Wall Street Journal, CNBC and various Business Journals and been interviewed by Nasdaq on its TradeTalk.
Moreover, I have a front-row seat to various moments of transformation impacting a hugely influential audience. This constituency includes public and private company CEOs, their boards and executive teams, technology executives, institutional investors, venture capitalists, state & federal regulators, government officials, academicians, trade association heads and members of the media.

If we’re playing the six degrees of separation game…
I am a proud Washington & Lee graduate (’99) where I majored in Politics within the C-school. At W&L, I was a four-year varsity letterman on the University’s baseball team. In addition, I earned my MBA from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business (’07). A native Bostonian (Needham), I went to high school in Dallas (St Mark’s) and St. Louis (MICDS). I have twice lived in New York City for extended periods of time and moved to Washington, D.C. in 2004.
Currently, I live in Chevy Chase, D.C. with my wife and two children. I proudly support — and am involved — with Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, the largest independent social services agency in the DC area providing critical services to hundreds of thousands of people in need. In addition, I’m proud to help A Wider Circle, which provides basic need items to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness, fleeing domestic abuse, or otherwise trying to lift people out of poverty. I’m a part of Leadership Greater Washington’s “Sweet 16” class, a member of Columbia Country Club and on the Young Professionals Board of Sibley Memorial Hospital Foundation.
