C. Todd Lombardo is a data nerd, design geek, and product fanatic all rolled into one. He’s currently the VP of Product & Experience at Openly, an insurance-tech startup. He’s led in-house product teams and consulted for many well-known product teams such as TripAdvisor, LogMeIn, Spotify, New York Times, BBVA, and more. As a “pracademic” he serves on the adjunct faculty at Madrid’s IE Business School, and Baltimore’s Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). He has co-authored three books in the product and user-experience design areas: Design Sprint (2015), Product Roadmaps Relaunched (2017), and Product Research Rules (2020) published by O’Reilly Media.
C Todd Lombardo is a data and design obsessed product leader, currently the VP of Product & Experience at Openly. He’s a mentor at TechStars, a global speaker and consultant on all things product design and customer experience, and is also on the faculty at Madrid’s I.E. Business School, and Baltimore’s Maryland Institute College of Art where he teaches graduate level courses in design, innovation, and data visualization.
And because he’s obviously bored and looking for more interesting things to do, C Todd has also co-authored three books published by O’Reilly, with his most recent book being Product Research Rules which is one of my new favorite guides to thinking about product research.
