My entrepreneurial journey officially launched when I founded TriNet in 1988. I served as CEO for the company’s first 20 years and Chairman till 2010. Before TriNet, I worked as a human resources manager for Navy Exchanges and enjoyed assignments in New York, New England, Seattle, Japan, Italy and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Playing a role in TriNet’s growth from startup to $1 billion+ in revenue has been a life shaping experience that now drives much of my other activities. Not just the experience of building a big company, but also personally benefiting from the Silicon Valley environment in ways which I now share with others through my activities across multiple causes and geographies.
In recent years I’ve become less involved in operating businesses to instead focus on growing teams that help others. These tend to involve building scalable mechanisms that connect entrepreneurs to the people and resources who can in turn help them start and grow companies beneficial to their local community.
