Background

Summary

I am the President and founder of Wantable, Inc, a personalized ecommerce company focused on womens beauty products. Our goal at Wantable is to develop a deep relationship with our customers and offer them a platform for discovery. Because each customer is unique, Wantable dynamically adjusts the product assortment for each user. Gone are the things customers don't want; gone are the walks down the aisles of products for other people.

Prior to Wantable, Inc, I founded BUYSEASONS, Inc. in 1999 and served as President and CEO until December, 2010. BUYSEASONS is the largest retailer and supplier of costumes and party supplies on the Internet. Prior to starting BUYSEASONS in 1999, I co-founded specialty retail company GMI in 1995 at age 22. During my tenure, GMI became one of Wisconsin’s fastest growing companies, and the largest seasonal retailer in Milwaukee, before I sold my interest to my business partner Jon Majdoch in 2000. GMI is still in business and successful today, a testament to our commitment to building self-sustaining organizations.

Specialties: Internet and direct marketing, retail, business integration and consolidation, VC and Angel funding, executive management, business strategy.
