Christopher Friend


I’m a Navy veteran, Harvard Alumnus with over 15 years of experience ?managing projects and multinational teams as large as 26, with a concentration on product development and management. ?I’ve managed product development throughout the product life-cycle (planning, creation, go-to-market) in 27 different industries for companies ranging from start-ups to SMB to enterprise organizations across private, public and government sectors.

I focus on driving sales revenue, market share, and profit margins by developing differentiated new products that deliver unique benefits and superior value to the customer. My cross-industry experience has fostered a divergent ?entrepreneurial mindset, which I define as being intellectually curious enough to find out-of-the-box creative solutions to highly complex and sometimes seemingly impossible problems and being passionate enough to love every minute of the journey. Additionally I believe in a highly structured approach to decision making that is rooted in data and analytics.
