Current ActivitiesI'm currently the Chief Technology Officer of Pixability, Inc., a video advertising and marketing software company that helps companies leverage the power of YouTube marketing with big data analytics. I'm responsible for product strategy and data science.
Here’s what we do:
Past ActivitiesBefore Pixability, I was the Chief Technology Officer (and co-founder) of Buzzient, Inc., a software company based in Cambridge, MA. Buzzient was founded in early 2008 and provides enterprise-class social media analytics and CRM integration.
I was a co-founder and board member of Blogwerk AG, a Web 2.0 startup focusing on blog content for the German-speaking region of Europe. It was acquired by WEKA Media in 2012.
I'm a co-founder of e-business consultancy Namics AG (formerly delta Consulting Group AG). Namics currently has 500+ employees and works for major customers such as Nestlé, Microsoft, European Central Bank, and Mercedes Benz. From 2002 to 2004 I was the CEO of Namics AG. Before that, I was Head of Consulting and Head of Technology. Between 2004 and 2008, I was a member of the board of directors.
Namics was founded in 1996 as a spin-off of the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. At the University's Institute of Information Management I worked from 1993-1997 as a research assistant and was involved in several pioneering research projects in the fields of e-commerce, electronic banking and groupware.
From Fall 2004 to November 2005, I was the founding CEO for the creation of new business unit Publiconnect at Swiss media company PubliGroupe. Publiconnect provides marketing services and a technology platform for cross-media classified advertising.
I was the first angel investor and board member in speech-technology company SVOX, which sold in 2011 to Nuance Communications for $125M. SVOX is the speech technology in Android and most luxury cars.
