Contact Tony

Passionate about leadership, technology, and retail. Recently decided to take very early retirement to explore personal branding opportunities in private equity, global motivational public speaking, and the disruption of multiple industries through research, writing and consulting. This is the age to disrupt or be disrupted.

Tony is currently CEO of TD Insights LLC, a consulting firm focused on:

  • Working with very select private equity firms in developing growth plans for their portfolio companies either through board of director's assignments or consulting.
  • Continue as a leading public speaking voice on the "Disruptive Future of Retail".
  • Provide private consulting to select innovation companies on global growth and expansion.
  • Boldly disrupt selected industries by continuing to write about technology and leadership.
  • Apply more “lean startup” to personal branding and social media leadership activities.
  • Plan a few fun surprises along the way.

Tony’s previous position was Chief Customer Officer of Tyco Retail Solutions responsible for developing global customers, global accounts management, recurring source tagging models including “as a” service and global marketing.
