Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection
Vice President of Innovation
June 2015 — Present
My primary objective as VP of Innovation is to identify and drive the pursuit of new sources of revenue, as well as profit and expense reduction through current, new or expanded markets, business opportunities, enhanced products or services, and technology. With a constant eye on identifying and pursuing extensions to our core business mission, as well as pursuing non-traditional distribution channel partners, I communicate broadly on the company's strategies related to innovation and new product development, and develop business plans for new business opportunities.
I'm responsible for the innovation process and managing innovations through the proof of concept phase, essentially shaping the innovation portfolio, thereby accelerating breakthroughs in product and technology.
