Years in current role: 9
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Creating meaningful jobs and building a team that cares about real world impact.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?
Hiring due to a shortage of technology and business professionals. We are looking for talented people who care about our social mission to improve healthcare decisions. Not enough people know about our Rochester-based company that is transforming healthcare globally.
What has been your organization’s biggest success over the past year?
Developing a winning strategy with associated KPI’s and OKR’s that are paying off with strong revenue growth in past 9 months.
What do you see as the biggest changes in the technology industry over the next year?
Everyone will probably say AI and ML, which has seen accelerating change that started 5 years ago, so I would say, in general,the biggest change is societal awareness of and pressure for large technology companies to be more responsible around privacy and their negative societal role in promoting fake news, etc. We probably will start to see more government control on big tech as is happening in Europe.
What community organizations do you support as a volunteer and why?
I am on the board of the Rochester Downtown Development Corp. and the Downtown Innovation Zone. We have to come together and make the city more vibrant and bring growth to the city through the arts, people living in the city and businesses flourishing in the city.
