Rachel is one of the rare people I’ve had the privilege of working with who can both create big ideas and execute with excellence.
During our time working together, I was able to be both a direct report of Rachel’s and serve as executive leadership alongside her. From this vantage point, I was able to see that she leads with empathy and helps those working alongside her grow and excel.
There are many instances I could cite to demonstrate Rachel’s abilities but I’ll limit myself to one. Given the needs of a rapidly growing company in the middle of a pivot to an enterprise model, Rachel created the role of Director of Product alongside Cerkl’s CEO. She quickly identified the needs of our clients & company, translated those needs into detailed plans, and delivered new functionality and processes that helped the company save literally years in it’s growth.
It can’t be stressed enough that the company would not be where it is today without Rachel Folz.
