Cary’s interest in software started with a hobby of customizing application interfaces. In 2009, he was recruited by a Sequoia-funded startup, where he learned to wear many of the hats critical to product management — biz dev, strategy, marketing, requirements gathering, user research, leading agile teams, and so on.
In 2013, he started on a new path in financial services, in Capital One’s San Francisco innovation lab. There, he guided strategy and development of next-gen B2C & B2B business models, productizing credit card transaction data into personalized digital experiences. In 2017, Cary joined ADP as a Senior Product Manager in Payroll, and in 2018 moved to ADP’s Retirement Services line of business as Product Director in charge of the 401k employee experience.
