Experience

President & CEO

yconic

 – Present (3 years 1 month)Toronto, Canada Area

yconic is the leader in understanding and building trust with students and millennials.

We partner with select brands, institutions, educators, and their agencies who want to better understand, recruit, and authentically build loyalty with our youth and student members. Our unique business model is revolutionizing how brands market to and hire students and millennials.

Our social platform, www.yconic.com is the only platform that makes life easier and less stressful for students pursuing higher education by providing them with the help that they want. With millions of registered students, yconic is the largest student community in Canada and recently expanded into the United States. Through yconic, students can access over $170M in financial opportunities to fund their education as well as engage with their peers via our Student Help Community.

We have become the “go to” thought leader on millennials because of the key insights we are able to obtain via our platforms, including Uthink, the largest youth focussed consumer insights panel in Canada, with over 550,000 young Canadians aged 13-30 participating in online market research.
