VP of Client Strategy Karen has a decade of experience in leading both talent acquisition and revenue teams for tech enabled recruitment platforms. Prior to joining Satellite in May, she led client-facing teams at Fairygodboss and Accenture. She now resides in Milwaukee, WI with her husband and two sons.
“Satellite managed to solve all the problems that I faced as a Talent Leader, a Revenue Leader, and a leader that is passionate about the advancement of women and URMs in the workplace. Not only are we removing barriers to access for incredible talent, but the level of detail that goes into our training program allows us to do so while de-risking the hiring process and having an on-demand talent pipeline for leaders that are scaling quickly. It’s a win-win-win.”
Tracee has 15+ years of experience leading marketing teams and building scalable marketing programs within edtech, e-learning, and B2B/B2C SaaS markets for both startup and mature brands. Outside the world of work you’ll find her volunteering for causes and programs that lift up women and families and partnering with her husband Michael in the raising of their three kiddos.
“Professional opportunity tends to boil down to skills and connections that not everyone has equal access to. Satellite is removing barriers to lucrative careers by creating a more inclusive way for professionals to onramp and for companies to find and hire qualified talent. It’s a true win/win scenario for workers and the workforce and a mission I’m honored to support.”
Michael brings over 15 years of expertise in the non-profit and education sectors. His experience includes programmatic and project leadership, management and training, adult learning and design.
“I believe in the power of a high quality, accelerated learning community and its potential to expand access to the high quality, high growth opportunities in the tech industry to talented, motivated professionals from across the country.”
Chuck is a technology executive and entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience leading high-growth teams and building category-defining software products. Prior to joining Satellite, he held engineering leadership roles at Textio, Outreach, and TakeLessons.
“As a lifelong learner I have experienced first-hand the thrill of acquiring new skills and the opportunities it opens. I’m excited to be building the technical platform and community that unlocks this same potential in individuals and cities across the US.”
Chris has 20 years of experience building companies and managing go-to-market teams. Most recently, he led the revenue org at Andela where he managed the team through its Series C and D funding rounds, growing revenue from $5M to over $55M in three years. Satellite is his third startup if you include the weekends spent at baseball card shows.
“For me, I view it as part of my personal mission to help as many curious, hard working individuals as possible. Tech has too many barriers to entry for someone who isn't from the right college, city or background. We are eliminating those as markers of success.”
