Get to Know Liz
Liz is a self-proclaimed foodie and has, in fact, never met a food she didn’t like. She actually aspires to appear on Chopped (or any other Food Network show) one day.
She recently rescued a 5 year old yorkie named Brady, is an avid reader and has finally accepted that e-readers are the way of the future.
Liz’s first job was at an ice cream store where she got a true education in running a small business. She was on the hook for everything from hiring, scheduling and payroll to inventory and vendor management.
What Does OpenView Mean to You?
OpenView’s mission is the reason I joined. Each person I met in the recruiting process was in sync and excited to be working toward a shared goal. To build great companies, we need to invest in the right ideas and teams, hire, train and retain amazing people and create scalable, repeatable go-to-market strategies. There are no shortcuts in what we do.
