Chase Franklin is Chief of
Strategy for Content and Media at Amdocs, the leader in providing Intentional
Customer Management systems for world’s largest telecommunications, cable and
satellite companies. Prior to Amdocs, Chase was a co-founder and CEO of Qpass,
Inc. Under Chase’s leadership the company grew from a startup to more than 200
employees with offices in North America and Europe, before committing to a
restructuring that reduced headcount to 50 and committed the company to a new
strategy and market. The restructuring ultimately paved the way for five years
of rapid growth, culminating in a $275 million liquidity event.

Corporation in key product development and strategic management positions.
Chase played a key role in Microsoft’s transition from individual application
to the suite that became Microsoft Office. He was part of the original design
team for Word for Windows before transitioning to focus on the integration and
interoperation of the elements of Microsoft Office. Subsequently, he
spearheaded some of Microsoft’s earliest e-commerce strategy and new business
development initiatives. In this role he led planning initiatives for key
aspects of the original programming on Microsoft’s interactive television and
MSN initiatives, including interactive advertising, online retailing, and other
network commerce service businesses. As Microsoft shifted strategy in the
mid-1990s to address the emerging Internet, Chase formed and led the team that
partnered with Wal-Mart and created the first release of the Microsoft Merchant
Server product. Chase also pioneered Microsoft’s initiatives in secure Internet
payments, including SET. Chase holds 3 patents relating to the design of various
Microsoft and Qpass technologies or applications.

double BS in Mathematics and Economics from Western Washington University.
