Chicago Headquarters

I joined Doblin in 2013 after two years of strategy consulting at Monitor Group. I am fascinated by the challenges of helping companies decide where to look for their next big offering, then helping them develop and build new concepts. As a part of the business discipline, I focus on complementing my design and research colleagues’ skills with tools and processes from the strategy consulting world.

Some things I’m particularly interested in: finding the best methods for developing a business case that gives executives and investors the confidence to proceed with a new-to-the-world or new-to-the-industry offering; refining the tactics that large, established companies can use to reinvent themselves with new business models; thinking about the second and third order implications of new technologies and business models.
