From 2009 to 2019, Mr. Kemp served as the Chief of Staff and Worldwide Business Operations lead for the GM and EVP of the Adobe Digital Marketing business. Over that 10 year period he was integrally involved in the day to day operations of the business as it grew from $300M to $3B in annual revenue. He also managed the due diligence and integration of $10B+ in acquisition value over 20+ deals.

 

As with any business that grows at that pace, there were significant challenges and the need to deal with unique and at times overwhelming obstacles. As the business grew, there was a constant need for new and expanded procedures and the leadership team adopted the mantra "what got us here, won't get us there". "As I look back at the business operations machine that we built, I take immense pride in our ability to make adjustments in real time. Everyday the business was bigger than the day before and it was exhilarating."

The best practices that were deployed in support of the business are what make up the components of the OCEO system. We are confident that the tools, templates, structure and lessons learned can be used to make your business successful.
