My Honor to Serve and to Help

I spent the last few days at Groupon in Chicago and have agreed to serve in a new office of the CEO on an interim basis. I have been involved with the company since 2009, and have served as Vice Chairman since the company went public. I am also on the board of directors of the company.

I believe in the people of Groupon. I believe in its business and in the way it serves its customers and merchants alike. This is a very important  next-generation-curated commerce company. It is one of the fastest growing companies ever, and employs around 10,000 people on a global basis. It is a pioneer in the new emerging category of where social, mobile, local and e-commerce all intersect.

I have also been asked to help recruit and find the next CEO of the company.
