My next chapter: Bain Capital
I left Mozilla in December of 2015. Since then, you might have heard from me, or read on Business Insider, that I was working to create a modern marketing network — that’s true. I had an extraordinary opportunity to cofound that company with someone I have admired since I first interned for him in the late 90s. As sometimes happen in the startup world, on our journey of starting this new company, something unexpected happened and things changed for me.
I am excited to announce that I am joining Bain Capital Private Equity as its first digitally-focused Operating Partner. My mission with Bain Capital is to grow its current portfolio while at the same also working alongside the deal teams to identify new acquisitions.
Bittersweet is a good way to describe how I’m feeling as I write this. I won’t be involved in helping to grow the company we started earlier this year but I will be its biggest cheerleader and I wish my cofounder all the best. For those who supported us along the way, thank you.
My first day at Bain Capital is October 24 2016. I am super excited. My family will continue to live in New York but I’ll be commuting up to Boston frequently to do my thing with Bain Capital — I hope to see you somewhere on the journey.
