Hi, I’m Tom

Is Your Product, Marketing, and Sales in Sync?

Building and scaling a company is tough. Many entrepreneurs struggle to keep product, marketing, and sales in sync, especially in B2B markets.

I help SaaS, Tech, Real Estate, and Climate Tech companies succeed by aligning their product, marketing, and sales. I've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly and understand the challenges you face.

In my previous company, Locatee (aquired by Tango), my team and I built a new product category «Workplace Analytics», raised millions from VCs and sold 7-figure deals to some of the largest enterprises with complex buying processes. Over the past years, I worked with dozens of companies including Open Circle, Soobr, iCommit, Hyll, Inventsys, Taskbase, CO4, and many more.
