Today, I am stepping up to the role of Chairman of CustomScoop and giving up my day-to-day responsibilities as CEO.
I have been involved with leading CustomScoop ever since I co-founded the company in 2000, so this is certainly a change. However, I will continue to be involved as a shareholder and as Chairman. While I won’t direct the company’s daily activities, I will remain a part of setting the overall vision and providing strategic guidance and advice.
Truth be told, my role in starting more than a half dozen other companies during the past decade has often led to prolonged absences on my part from daily CustomScoop management, so this isn’t something entirely new.
We are fortunate to have an extremely talented team in place at CustomScoop, led by Executive Vice President Steve Bracy, Vice President of Professional Services Jen Zingsheim, and Director of Technology Dave Underwood. They will continue to deliver innovative, quality products with outstanding customer service.
For those of you interested in my next move, I encourage you to check out the post on my personal blog where I explain that I am joining DCI Group, a Washington, DC public affairs firm as Chief Digital Officer.
