Brandon was fully immersed in the Bay Area tech world at a young age. His love of Data came during an internship with Cloudera that ultimately led to various full time positions on teams within the sales department. In his time at Cloudera the company grew from 250 people to 1,500, and a valuation of 500M to 4BN.
After moving to Austin to help scale out a remote sales team for Cloudera, he took a leap of faith and followed a mentor to a tiny startup based out of Southern California, Procore. In the last year and a half Procore has scaled from 250 to over 700 people, and just recently received a valuation of 1BN, putting it in the Unicorn club.
Having worked in companies at both the Platform and Application layer, Brandon's understanding of data goes deep into the ways to store, manage, and anlalyze data up to the power/value of data for the end user.
