CEO of FastSpring (2005-3/2013) (SaaS e-commerce platform, #1 fastest-growing company in LA, #13 in USA, 2006-2010); previously led customer acquisition for Google, Picasa, GoToMyPC, GoToMeeting; former EIR at Idealab (largest tech incubator)
Dan and I started 1899 together to help connect serial entrepreneurs in the Boston area. Dan has an incredible sense for business development and has become an expert in generating significant revenue for start-ups. He's experienced in bringing startups through highly successful acquisitions. His specialty is marketing new services and building consumer brands online.
IMHO, Dan was one of the primary reason Picasa was successful - he is one of the most talented and wily entrepreneurs with whom I have ever worked.
I first worked with Dan at CitrixOnline in 2002-2003, and we have worked together ever since. Dan managed several high-profile relationships to promote GoToMyPC, helping to generate millions of dollars in revenue which in turn helped lead to a $225 million acquisition of GoToMyPC by Citrix. Dan is talented in business, pays attention to detail, and knows online marketing inside and out.
