Todd gained his foundation in business through twenty years of technology sales, during which he developed go-to-market plans, created and sold multi-tower solutions, and built high-performing teams for leading technology companies.
Later, Todd co-founded an IT consulting and staffing company called ProTask, Inc. The company focused on financial services and healthcare IT, and Todd oversaw all functions of the business, including sales, finance, operations, and growth strategies. Ultimately, the business grew from 0 to $20 million in revenues, with over 100 employees.
In mid-2022, Todd engaged Momentum Advisory Partners to facilitate an exit from the business. Working with Akash and his team, they were able to generate significant interest, and in February of 2023, Todd exited the business through a transaction with Inspyr Solutions, a portfolio company of A&M Capital.
Todd has since joined Momentum Advisory Partners to share his experience with other founders in the staffing industry.
