The Career of Cameron Poetzscher, Uber Executive

April 20, 2017

Prior to the launch of his career as an Uber executive, most of Cameron Poetzscher's career had been focused primarily on the areas of technology, anyway. Most of his previous work had been centered on telecommunications and media, but those will probably be very important in his position as the Head of Corporate Development for Uber, anyway. In fact, most of his previous experience is likely to serve him well at Uber. He has a ton of great experience advising industry leaders and innovators in many non-tech business sectors, as well. Among those sectors include the consumer goods, healthcare, industrial, and real estate sectors, all of which could turn out to be very useful at Uber.

Cameron Poetzscher’s experience is also very global in scope, having worked on deals on five continents, which will also be useful for a company hoping to make inroads in the developing world. His knowledge and experience with regard to cross-border transactions, including knowing how to deal with the considerable cultural and structural complexities they entail will be a key skill set to have in moving the company forward in the future.

Even before Cameron Poetzscher joined Uber, he had an established reputation as someone with a unique approach to problem-solving, marked by his creativity and by his demonstrated ability to analyze and adapt to any situation has allowed him to do much of his best work in very tense, challenging, high-pressure environments. Also helpful is his deep and varied experience in structuring partnerships and acquisitions and negotiating and executing deals. In 17 years of global investment banking experience at Goldman Sachs, Cameron Poetzscher advised many of the most sophisticated and demanding clients on a number of complex, high-profile mergers and acquisitions and other complex transactions. He also assisted on many highly publicized IPOs and other financings.
