About Liam

A hockey playing pilot and sailor who happens to enjoy building, launching, and scaling software companies that leverage technology to make a difference. 

Liam leads Product at Valassis Local Solutions where he leads teams that launch new ventures. More than 60,000 small and medium sized businesses leverage solutions to acquire new customers and bring them back for more visits.

Before joining Valassis Local Solutions, Liam was a Product Manager at Gannett Digital Ventures where he worked on products for USA Today, 40+ Television Stations and more than 100 newspapers. Liam produced one of the first news stories in virtual reality where he immersed USA Today's audience by enabling them to ski down a mountain as gold medalists Lindsey Vonn and Ted Ligety with full 360-degree visibility.

Liam also founded an e-commerce marketplace that featured consumer products and intelligently routed orders to distributers. The site generated more than $50mm in transactions and helped Gannett monetize its audience.

When not playing with technology, Liam has officiated several USA Hockey National Championships and a NCAA ECAC Frozen Four game. In his spare time, he enjoys flying airplanes, snowboarding couloirs in the backcountry, and sailing far away from cell reception.
