Hi Everyone! I'm back in NYC and thought I had retired, but a truly compelling opportunity has me back in the startup game again. This time, in a way that is likely relevant to all of you! I've founded a new company called AboveBoard, which is an inclusive platform for executive hiring. The short version is: anyone VP level + can join and see executive and board opportunities–almost 400 already! You can read about it in Fast Company: https://www.fastcompany.com/90565186/landing-a-c-suite-role-or-board-seat-just-got-easier-with-this-high-level-jobs-platform Join using my personal invite code here: platform.aboveboard.com/signup?inviteId=6774bbc3-3055-44d5-a120-135f7513f656 And, if you're interested, my personal story about it is here: https://www.duncalfe.me/home/were-building-aboveboard-to-change-executive-search-and-thereby-the-world Working on something that has an enormous market opportunity while helping individuals and making the world a better place is pretty fabulous. Especially at this stage in our lives.

Adjusting to live during the pandemic. Strange times but thankful for family and friends and health. I am in my twelfth year at Marshall Wace (based in our NYC office) and kids are 15, 12 and 10. They've a mix of in-person and remote learning. Still in Scarsdale and we have a new home in Water Mill (where we spend this past summer). Meeting Chris McDonald for coffee next week!
