Product Director, Vivid Seats
Todd has over 12 years experience working in technology with career stops at companies ranging from 20K employees to just 75. He started by engineering call recording, enterprise reporting, and computer telephony solutions for Discover Card and Morgan Stanley. Todd then made a move to Orbitz where he found his true calling in product management. After a few years cutting his teeth on product at Orbitz, he made the move to Gogo shortly after they launched the first Wi-Fi equipped airplane. There, he helped build several iterations of the consumer-facing inflight portal as well as technology for some big campaigns to monetize leisure traveler traffic with partners such as Google, Facebook, Ford, Gilt Group & Allstate. In his current role at Vivid Seats, Todd has started a product and sgile discipline where he is working feverishly with his team to take on Stubhub. He has a passion for working on products that interest him and touch his life outside of work; travel and now music/sports.
Outside of Vivid Seats, you can probably find Todd at a local meet-up or at any of Chicago’s awesome music venues conducting Product “research”.
