Executive Team

We are a trio of seasoned entrepreneurs with over 60 years of combined business experience. Together, we have accumulated over $100 Billion in ad spend. We’ve built over 39 successful companies, one of which scaled to a 9 figure valuation in under 5 years. Companies founded by members of our executive team include Podium Publishing, Infinite Profit Solutions, BiOptimizers and tribe.

We’ve collectively advised hundreds of tech-enabled startups on strategic growth.

We aren’t a bunch of crypto nerds who decided to build something on the blockchain because it’s the hip thing to do. We’re here to disrupt the advertising world. We’re here to shut down the ad fraud, the digital scammers, the hackers and the ad networks victimizing both advertisers and publishers. We’re here to help the brave entrepreneurs of this world get a positive return on investment from their ad spend. We’re here to put as much money as possible into the publisher’s hands

We’re here to connect every online tribe, connecting tribe members with the companies and organizations that serve them. We are tribeOS.
