Scott Smith

CEO, CloudApp
Holly was incredible to work with. She showed up on day 1 with terrific enthusiasm and an uncanny ability to identify high leverage growth opportunities for our product. Loved her leadership and direction. She brought an immense wealth of insight, ideas, and energy. We looked to her for leadership in future planning, and which areas would provide the most leverage and quick returns to help our small team get results.

Holly is an amazing advisor that helps us spread head the GTM function from scratch. We really would recommend her to any fast growth startups and she is a truly a rockstar.

Ben Harris

Founder and CEO, Drop
It’s such a pleasure to work with Holly. She has the unique ability to quickly understand your business, rapidly build a mental SWOT, ask just the right questions and give strategic, actionable advice to address the most important issues.

Karina Qian

Head of Business Analytics, Miro
Holly was an amazing resource - super patient, thoughtful, helpful and authentic! My first project at Miro was tackling our paid marketing acquisition and I had only ever run 10 FB ad tests before; Holly gave me the context, confidence and insight to help me (and the company) really understand where our marketing spend was going and optimize it - saving us hundreds of thousands of dollars!
