Understand what inspires customers and deliver products that matter.
Strategic leadership to deliver the best in the tactical product execution.
Inside and outside alike, everyone needs to understand why the product specifically matters to them.
A shift from iteration to evolution through comprehensive leadership across teams.
It either works or it doesn't work.
No matter how revolutionary, game changing or delightful a product is marketed, what actually matters is product relevance and usability. When relevance and usability come together, simplicity is the outcome. Making a product simple is vastly different than making a simple product. Product simplicity is the culmination of a tightly-knit leadership, product, engineering, marketing, sales and support process. I'm here to help you build all of this into your organization.
I am currently available for full-time engagements specific to leadership and director engagements. While I thrive within leadership and strategic roles, I also firmly believe in direct participation of tactical work specific to Product Manager and related positions.
Interim Director engagements allow us to build the MVP-equivalent of a full stack team. In these types of roles, I take on the full responsibilities and time commitments of a full-time role, but within a fixed length of time.
Tactical in nature, consulting engagements are meant to execute on specific visions. Those visions can range from research and user requirements gathering to specific strategy development.
Nikhil is a proactive and engaged team member, focusing on actual, real-world metrics within our growth and outreach strategy. I appreciated his attention to detail and measuring everything, while not losing sight of the fact that some growth and marketing strategies require lateral approaches. He is organized, able to manage up, down, and across teams, and absolutely drives towards results. This was immensely helpful with Filament during our high-growth stage. He's also an excellent communicator in both copy and human interaction.
Nikhil is a unique talent who combines market vision with a deep understanding of customer experience - and what it takes to deliver both. I'm fortunate to have brought on Nikhil to lead product strategy for our solar marketing business. He rapidly accelerated our growth by getting up to speed in record time on our initiative, taking over operations, and laying out a roadmap that delivered on both our short-term and long-term goals. Most importantly, Nikhil makes going to work every day more fun with his humor and passion. I hope to work with him again soon.
Nikhil brings a unique perspective to the projects and backed up his insights and ideas, grounding them in a strong understanding of what it would take to bring them to life. Nikhil is a great collaborator, inspiring better thinking across the team. He has a special spark that really added to the culture of the office.

Nikhil is uses data, deep and careful research, and his own insights and background to drive a product roadmap that combines company goals and customer needs. His passion for creating truly great products is evident from the moment you meet him, translates into outstanding work, and is infectious within an organization.
Product vision and planning is nothing without the ability to collaborate with design and engineering to execute. Nikhil's passion and deep understanding of these disciplines make him a respected cross-functional leader able to build products from the ground up.
