These are exciting times at BillShrink! This week we launched our sixth feature, a tool to help millions of Americans find and select the right TV service. On the heels of this week’s great TV services launch, we are also announcing another transition in the company – I will be moving on to pursue new entrepreneurial opportunities as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Trinity Ventures, which led BillShrink’s Series B of $8M.

During my tenure as CEO, we’ve built a truly talented 22 person team, launched six amazing verticals, had a national ad campaign with T-Mobile behind us (best TV commercials EVER), partnership with WalMart, and continued to help hundreds of thousands of people a month save money in a tough time in our economy. Along with the humbling attention we’ve gotten from everyone, I feel privileged to have been part of all this great company. It felt like yesterday that Schwark, Samir and I were working out of a 200-square foot office being incubated by Bessemer Venture Partners. It was an incredible experience to work with both of them.

I always live and breathe what I’m doing, and for the past two years it has been BillShrink.

However, like many entrepreneurs, I always have new ideas brewing. Knowing the time to pursue those ideas is key. This is that time. So I have decided to join my mentor Gus Tai at Trinity Ventures as an Entrepreneur in Residence. Stay tuned for what’s next for me.

As co-founder Schwark re-assumes his role as CEO, I feel confident in BillShrink’s continued success and momentum. I will continue to stay close to the company and am excited to see the team further grow from its strong foundation.
