Before Peloton Cycle, White was VP Finance at DigitalOcean. There he helped raise a $37M Series A and secured more than $150M in additional forms of financing. In White's first VP Finance role at Makerbot Industries, he built the finance department from the ground up, secured three funding rounds, and facilitated a $400M+ acquisition by Stratasys.
"Throughout my career, I've searched for companies that can disrupt massive industries. Rocketrip fits that profile," said White. "Business travel has been static for decades, and Rocketrip has proven that it can shake up the space. The platform inspires employees to change their travel spending habits, and nothing comes close to competing with it."
"White brings the skills we need to launch out of startup mode and grow to our highest potential," said Dan Ruch, CEO of Rocketrip. "He will play a key role in standardizing operations and directing our team towards bold, measurable goals. We're excited to see his impact."
An active member of New York's tech community, White has been a speaker at WeWork Summer Camp, Silicon Valley Bank, and local Meetups. He earned a B.A. in Accounting and Marketing from Manhattan College.
