Get to Know Gail

When Gail’s not working, you can usually find her cooking gluten free delicacies, working out or exploring sites in and around Boston. She’s also an avid traveler and dabbles in French and Hebrew. Her dream is to be featured on a season of This Old House.

Gail’s first job was as a restaurant hostess. It was definitely harder than it looked, but the free food made it worthwhile.

What Does OpenView Mean to You?

OpenView’s mission of improving people’s working lives means building a firm that supports the community around us through both professional and charitable initiatives. I think more so than any other VC firm I’ve encountered, OpenView really puts people at the center of everything it does, whether it’s our employees, people in the portfolio or community leaders.
