  • Founder, Chief Digital Officer

    TXTEdge - Mobile Marketing Platform
    (3 years 2 months)

    TxtEdge was a mobile marketing technology venture I concepted and launched that provided a way for consumers looking for value and merchants looking for new (and repeat) customers with a way to communicate on a one-to-one basis, at the point of decision. Think mobile coupons meets Groupon meets Google Maps meets Foursquare - before smart phones were more popular than oxygen.

    Within a few months of launching a proof-of-concept, TxtEdge was working with companies like Steinway Musical Instruments and The Brooklyn Cyclones, as well as small to medium businesses in many different verticals, to test the efficacy of mobile marketing strategies and campaigns - with great results.

  • Director Digital Technology - US Digital Marketing Group

    BBC Worldwide Americas
    (2 years)

    In this role, I worked closely with my executive management peers and business and technology groups to help develop business, marketing and technology strategies and to identify opportunities and risks for delivering digital products and services.

    This included the identification of competitive products and services, opportunities for innovation and assessment of marketplace obstacles/hurdles to business success. I was also an agent of change [and finally forced to take my dose of hemlock], sharing knowledge, mentoring and educating the organization's management, staff, partners, customers and stakeholders regarding technological vision, opportunities and challenges in the digital space.

  • Founder, Chief Digital Officer

    Ambient Media, Inc.
    (5 years 1 month)

    In late 2001, I created the business model, technology blueprint and led the development and launch of an extensible, scalable, rich media-based narrowcasting network. My work included the development and deployment of a proprietary digital media scheduling/distribution platform and companion media player to allow for the efficient scheduling and delivery, playback and management of content over a private network.

    The privately funded Ambient Media Network's digital out-of-home displays could be found in New York's Penn Station, small and mid-sized venues like bagel stores, golf courses, deli's, and more throughout the New York metro area.

    Ambient Media subsequently raised a first round of funding and partnered with a small network of OB/GYN's, agencies and advertisers to launch a private digital out-of-home network that was a competitor to Accent Health. The Ambient Health Network provided patients in physician waiting rooms with health and fitness related content.

  • Chief Digital Officer

    Thinking Pictures
    (3 years)

    Thinking Pictures provided an opportunity for me to dive deep into the digital-out-of-home and digital marketing product development space. I had the privilege of working with some of the most interesting [I'll leave the definition of 'interesting' to your imagination, for sure] and smartest people I've ever met.

    Our efforts at Thinking Pictures helped to define today's incarnation of digital-out-of-home using networked displays in public and private venues. I led various development teams to create the technology platform that ran our "smart" displays and the Thinking Pictures network.

    These displays were incredibly functional, able to take action and play content based on what they "knew" about the people standing in front of them. The displays were equipped with card readers, motion sensors and more - a real "Minority Report" experience for movie theater patrons. We partnered with Shari Redstone and her National Amusements theater chain to deploy Thinking Picture's displays throughout the US.

    Daniel Langlois, founder of Softimage Inc, a recognized leader in the fields of cinema and media creation for its digital technologies, and especially its 3-D computer animation techniques, was an early investor in Thinking Pictures and ardent supporter of our efforts.

  • Copiague High School

    Copiague was a cool place to grow up. I always wondered why my dad, an immigrant from Campobasso, Italy, settled the family in Copiague, Long Island. A little research about the town gave me the answer:

    At the turn of the 20th century, Copiague became home to a large population of Italian immigrants. John Campagnoli, an Italian engineer, purchased the land north of the railroad tracks and renamed it Marconiville in honor of his close friend, Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of the wireless telegraph. Mr. Marconi, beginning in 1912 and for several years thereafter, visited Copiague each summer. Many streets in this area bear the name of famous Italians.

    In the 1920's, an area which was named the American Venice was constructed in Copiague. It was designed to resemble Venice, Italy with canals and arched bridges. Local residents could be seen riding gondolas in the canals.

    How could you not want to settle in a place like that?

    I did some time here at SCCC in the hopes of prepping to become a dentist. Clearly, I didn't spend enough time.

  • The Evergreen State College

    GeneralGeneral

    What a culturally kick-ass place TESC was. I was working professionally as a musician and decided I needed some culture, so I enrolled in a program around Arts & Music of the 19th Century. Once the professor advised the class we'd be heading up into the mountains for a music retreat for a couple days, I split TESC about as quickly as I'd signed up; that retreat meant I'd miss a couple nights of my regular gig - along with the revenue I'd need to pay rent and buy food!

    TxtEdge - A precursor to apps like Foursquare, but based on the intelligent SMS [short message service] technology built into just about every mobile phone on the planet. Did you ever want the flexibility to "pull" relevant and timely offers for products and/or services, no matter where you were or what time of day? Not the kind of junk that collects in your inbox, but timely, relevant, and personal offers you want - wherever, whenever. TxtEdge empowered consumers to take charge of their shopping experiences while providing merchants with an intelligent, flexible way to make their offers [digital coupons] available in a way that made sense for their business - and the consumers they were trying to reach.

    Ambient Media Inc. - Think private TV, but on LCD displays strategically located in the waiting rooms of physicians nationwide. Not as smart as the Thinking Pictures displays, but smart enough to engage viewers and generate revenue!

    Thinking Pictures - If you've ever seen the movie Minority Report, you've seen the concept of this technology in action. Think about the scene where Tom Cruise goes into a Gap store and the digital-out-of-home displays recognize him, telling him about previous purchases and new items he might want to consider. That's Thinking Pictures technology. Partnering with Shari Redstone's National Amusements Theaters, we deployed Thinking Pictures displays in movie theater lobbies around the country, providing a way for theater patrons to interact with smart, interactive movie trailers and advertisements that came to life when patrons were within a few feet of the displays. The displays were connected to a robust network and based on what they knew about people standing in front of them, could play content tailored for that persons preferences.

  • User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA)

    Member

    User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) is the organization of choice for user experience professionals worldwide. UXPA was established in 1991 as the UPA (Usability Professionals' Association) when Usability was considered to be an umbrella term for what UXPA members do. In 2012 the name was changed to UXPA to reflect the change in members' job titles to User Experience (UX) and to continue to represent their breadth of work.

    UXPA defines a UX professional broadly as people who research, design, and evaluate the user experience of products and services. UX is an approach to product development that incorporates direct user feedback throughout the development cycle (human-centered design) in order to reduce costs and create products and tools that meet user needs and have a high level of usability (are easy to use).

Recommendations

A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Gene:

  • Articulate, sharp minded, chock-full of insight, and total team player. These are some of the descriptors that pop to mind when I think of working with Gene. Gene is always ready to go to work in variety of ways here at Sitecore. He regularly goes beyond his job description of digital marketing evangelist. He's a college professor, former salesperson, and has sharp mind when it comes to strategic thinking on account opportunities. He's also been instrumental in opening up creative dialogues with digital marketers in my territory. We worked on a Twitter Chat together entitled: “Customer Experience and the Personalization Imperative." I wish I had the pleasure to have worked with more Gene De Libero's throughout the course of my 20-year sales career. I highly recommend Gene and would hire him in a "New York minute" to be part of any software organization.
  • Gene has been a great person to get to know. He's truly a unique individual - intelligent, curious, passionate, personable, and very knowledgeable. He has a way of motivating people by challenging their pre-conceived ideas and actions, all for the greater good. the very fact that this recommendation will utterly disappear in the sea of Linkedin recommendations he has is a testament to the value he brings to the people he encounters.
