Samson spent 2008–2016 at Fannie Mae as Emergency Manager/Deputy Chief of Staff for the Operations and Technology Executive Office. He said, “I know a bit more about mortgage finance and how Ops & Tech at a multi-billion company works than is probably healthy.”

Now he spends his time as a devious thinker applying common sense and proven c-suite experience to help executives and entrepreneurs win. In his own words, “If I have a talent, it’s helping smart and amazing people to be even more smart and amazing. How can I help you win today?”
