Today is my first day at Cardlytics, and I am raring to get started!
The outpouring of support and warm welcomes I have received to date from clients, partners, employees, and investors has been nothing short of amazing, and I look forward to connecting with everyone personally in the coming days.
In terms of how I plan to spend my time in these initial few days and weeks, I plan to concentrate on two things. First and foremost, I plan to listen. Listen to our customers. Listen to our employees. And listen to the many other stakeholders that have worked tirelessly to make Cardlytics into the purchase intelligence leader it is today.
Second, I plan to immerse myself into the finer details of the business. I’m excited to dive into not only the many legacy offerings of business, but also the exciting opportunities presented by some of our newest divisions like Bridg, Dosh, and Entertainment.
At the end of the day, my leadership philosophy is pretty simple:
- Employees are the most valuable assets of an organization. Build a culture of inclusion and embrace cognitive diversity, which allows for different perspectives and experiences that can’t be replicated.
- Make decisions that are rooted in data. It saves time, holds us accountable, and challenges us to continuously innovate.
- Take calculated risks and invest in change. Stay ahead of the curve on the things that we know will change, not those that will stay the same.
I remain as excited as ever with the opportunity in front of us. And I know many of our partners share this same sentiment. There’s so much potential to unlock continued growth for our business and our customers, and I am eager to hit the ground running for the next chapter of Cardlytics.
