QMarket Corporation (d/b/a QMarket Associates) • September 2005 - September 2013
QMarket is my consulting business. I have a few associates and am always looking for good talent to extend my network. I do product design, (including design analysis such as FEA, CFD..etc.), and business strategy oriented toward product-led growth. I've operated in GIS, Consumer products (including CPG / FMCG), and pharmaceuticals among others. Since I started QMarket while I was still at NAVTEQ, it appears to overlap with my time at NAVTEQ.
