A family man who loves to travel, Derek is looking forward to crossing Israel off his bucket list. Count Alaska and Scandinavia as well as a return to Italy as next up. He has worked the agency and media sides of the business, developing both strong brand and lead generation expertise. Although he bleeds the Maize and Blue of Michigan, Derek credits his success to his Kellogg (MBA) education where diverse teams were forced to look at a problem through a different lens. Derek finds similarities and uniqueness with Scale working alongside data scientists to analyze data in real-time solving business challenges.
