"Ken is a trusted leader for more than 20 years, directing organizations through their most pressing crises and most promising opportunities."

Ken is a sought-after executive who, for the past few years, has coached many CEOs through the challenges of building their organizations. He advised a seasoned CEO through a business-threatening move that resulted in a $1M strategic investment; and mentored a first-time CEO through a company repositioning and its successful launch of a product into the mobile market.

Prior to his focus on executive coaching, Ken co-founded Commendo, a software company that provided rich Internet experiences on Intel Atom powered mobile devices. Under his leadership, the company avoided a crisis after a multi-billion dollar acquisition, and formed a partnership with Intel that culminated in a Best of Show Award at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Ken joined Scient, Wall Street's darling in the eBusiness consulting space, at the height of the Internet bubble, and helped the company grow to a $6B market cap. He led two critical engagements during eBay's rapid growth, convincing its CEO to endorse Scient's IPO. He is recognized for leading the development of eBay's worldwide network strategy.
