The TraceLink Team
The TraceLink Team
The TraceLink team is passionate about protecting patients, enabling health, ensuring compliance and improving profits throughout global Life Sciences from ingredient to patient. We are only successful if we help you, our customers, achieve your current targets and future goals across these four crucial areas.
TraceLink drives strategic value for companies across their supply, production and distribution operations by taking a fresh approach to the challenge of connecting people, processes and information together into a collaborative business environment. TraceLink’s team members are key assets in this pursuit. We have worked together for over a decade and draw on a deep backgrounds in leading-edge collaboration technologies, supply chain processes, supply network connectivity and highly scalable cloud-based software solutions.
President and CEO
As President and CEO, my vision is to build a business that will transform how companies manage the manufacturing, packaging and distribution of products across a network of supply partners. Since 2003, a core team of us built SupplyScape, which was purchased by TraceLink in 2009, by working with industry on breakthrough track and trace solutions for product security and consumer safety. At TraceLink, we are blending decades of knowledge in technology and supply chain business process with revolutionary approaches to constructing Cloud based collaborative applications that will significantly improve supply chain management and operations. My contribution is to leverage 25 years of experience in product innovation, business strategy and management excellence in order to provide our customers with a Predictable Supply Network that delivers measurable improvements in the performance of their business. An eclectic set of work experiences in almost all facets and stages of a technology business providing solutions to small and large organizations combined with rich perspectives from Paul Allen companies to Microsoft and FirstMark Capital enable me build a company valued by our customers.
As the Chief Financial Officer of TraceLink, I lead the accounting, financial, legal and human resources functions of the company. In addition, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work closely with our customers throughout the sales process and see the value that our solutions bring to their firms. Working for innovative high technology companies and helping them establish business models and infrastructures to drive growth and scalability is an enduring passion of mine. I started my career in the Boston office of one of the Big 4 accounting firms and I draw on over eighteen years of accounting and financial experience in both public companies (Computervision, MatrixOne) and privately held venture capital backed start-ups (nTAG Interactive, Performaworks, Aras Corporation).
SVP Product and Cloud Engineering
When we were launching TraceLink, the idea of transforming an industry by connecting partners, enabling collaboration and the shared execution of business processes excited all of us on the founding team. In my role as SVP of Product and Cloud Engineering, I’m driven by defining, developing and delivering products and technologies that solve real customer problems in innovative ways. I’m able to leverage my over 23 years of industry experience in distributed and collaborative systems in order to deliver on our vision. While at MITRE, I invented a place-based collaborative environment that became a standard collaborative environment across DoD and intelligence agencies. Making a difference in the world of those users was a huge reward and many of those lessons are still applicable over 15 years later! I’ve delivered new products to Fortune 1000 companies and consumers alike to make new markets and like the rush of bringing something new to the market. I’m fortunate to be working with an experienced team, many of whom I have worked with for many years. We’re dedicated to getting our new products out to you and looking to make a difference in your work life.
VP Product Management and Customer Success
In my role as VP Product Management and Customer Success, I’m responsible for defining TraceLink’s cloud-based collaborative supply chain applications and ensuring that their adoption leads to clear customer success. I have a strong passion for engaging with customers to understand their challenges and believe that the most valuable innovations stem from joint collaboration and a shared sense of “seeing” the future. Our solutions are informed by direct interaction with our customers to understand their operational needs, business challenges and opportunities. In my 20+ year career, this customer-first approach has enabled me to deliver innovative products for my customers. While at MITRE, I delivered collaboration and workflow solutions to bring together virtual teams for the Intelligence Community. At several startups I delivered SaaS-based track-and-trace and e-commerce solutions that helped a diverse set of customers ranging from Fortune 1000 corporations to individual online consumers. The TraceLink team and I are excited to work with you on solutions that help you innovate on the execution of your shared business processes and create value with your supply chain partners.
As VP of Engineering, I lead TraceLink’s engineering department and am ultimately responsible for the development of TraceLink’s cloud-based service. My goal is to improve and expand the functionality of the TraceLink service with on-time delivery and high quality. I started 25 years ago as a development manager and product manager for Oracle ERP. Since that time my career has focused along one of two dimensions – first, a focus on supply chain applications, in positions of engineering leadership at supply chain companies such as Oracle, i2 Technologies, WorldChain and Optum; second, a focus on application integration and B2B products at Vitria Technology and Scribe Software. TraceLink is perfect blend of these domains, leveraging a cloud-based architecture allow businesses to seamlessly exchange information and provide a common unified view of their supply chain.
As Vice President of Marketing, my passion is to connect with potential customers, give them clear and concise information on how we can help them, then remove barriers standing in their way. At the end of the day, people make decisions and put their name on the line, not just companies. The challenges are exhilarating: How to cost-effectively reach hundreds of thousands of prospects worldwide? How to communicate solutions intersecting supply chain, social networking and cloud computing boundaries? How to simplify online exploration of and access to solutions that are traditionally delivered through enterprise sales models? I feel lucky to be able to leverage the team around me and my more than 20+ years of diverse marketing and product development experience in small startups (ICOM, SupplyScape) and multi-national corporations (Rockwell Automation, Catalyst International). If there is one thing I have learned through developing and launching products, creating brands and defining inbound marketing strategies, it is to listen, react and adapt to the market rather than stick to a single playbook.
VP Cloud and CIO
In my over twenty years of architecting, deploying and managing distributed systems, I haven't been more excited about this opportunity to be a part of a veteran team aimed at transforming the way an industry works. The drumbeat of change is a constant in my field, but the drums have never been louder than of late. With cloud technologies at the cusp of this change, the fundamentals of systems architecture and management still remain and drive our approach to delivering to you the best solutions. As Vice President of Cloud and CIO, my promise to always deliver TraceLink's solutions to you in the most secure, consistent and impactful manner possible.
VP Network Development
As Vice President of Network Development, my goal is to attract the industry’s leading companies to the TraceLink network by demonstrating how better collaboration and visibility can deliver strategic value. The TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud is fundamentally changing how companies supply the world with medicines. The Network Development team has the unique opportunity to shape that progression. I’ve spent the past 15 years working within the Life Sciences industry helping companies secure their supply chains, gain increased visibility and drive operational efficiencies. It’s an exciting opportunity, but also humbling, to work with a fantastic team and an industry dedicated to improving patient health.
