As a senior consultant working at the executive level, Damon personally led massive technology and operational transformations for companies ranging from pre-revenue start-ups to Fortune 500. Working at the very top of these organizations, Damon led massive initiatives that were too large or complicated for internal staff in situations where “everything was on the line”, and millions of dollars were spent. These projects were rooted in replacement of massive multi-million dollar information systems and required business process innovation on a global scale, and all were “bleeding edge” innovations at the time. Known for excellence in execution, Damon’s specialty became rescuing failing initiatives, with 100% success rate. Estimating he worked 47,000 hours over a dozen years as he led these teams, this intense and pressure-packed experience provided him with a deep level of understanding regarding the dynamics involved in planning and executing enterprise-wide transformations.

In 2014, Damon founded CXO Service Co., a premium provider of Interim Executive leadership to organizations, a newly emerging field in the U.S. at the time. CXO Service Co. helps companies transform to attain higher levels of performance or tackle persistent problems by providing on-demand executives with specialized skills that are matched to a company’s specific needs.
