Mr. Shaw has been the founder or first professional CEO of six companies, a majority of which have led to successful exits. MUCH MORE has been learned from the ones that disappointed.

He has served, at the direction of venture capital investors/boards as interim and turnaround CEO for four other companies which allowed him to understand that the ‘smartest people’ often made serious mistakes. He also learned not to confuse being rich or spending a lot of money with being smart…or successful

Mr. Shaw has run operations and subsidiaries in the US, Europe/EMEA, and Asia.

Mr. Shaw has sat on over 20 private and public boards as an outside director. He has also served as a partner for a venture capital fund. All of which have given him incredible insights as an insider, while not being directly responsible for clear deliverables…a great position that allows one to claim success, or deny failure.

Mr. Shaw holds a bachelor of engineering degree in electrical engineering from City College of New York and a master of business administration degree from the University of Connecticut. His real ‘know-how’ has come after earning his PhD from the University of Reality.
