Michael and Cheyenne will work closely with Ben Tryba, Vice President of Operations, to help implement and optimize marketing, sales, and customer success best practices across the portfolio.
"We are excited to announce the addition of Cheyenne and Michael to the Growth Street team. The operations team works closely with our founders from industry to increase their execution capacity and to provide B2B SaaS and technology enabled services best practices to help them achieve their goals faster and with less risk," explained Steve Wolfe and Nate Grossman, Co-Founders of Growth Street.
"Working closely with the Growth Street team, we've been able to reposition and accelerate the company's go-to-market, hire senior leaders of Marketing and Product Management quickly, and unlock customer demand," said Marion Lewis, CEO and Co-Founder of Govenda, a Growth Street portfolio company that provides a Board governance and relationship management SaaS platform.
"Combining Growth Street's B2B scaling experience with a founder's knowledge of their customers and end market is powerful.
