Building a World-Class Growth & Marketing Team
Time & Location
About the Event
Achieving Growth for a startup is about way more than pulling levers and sending campaigns. The much more important, and much harder, part is assembling a great team. But what does a great team look like? How do you attract, motivate, and retain the best? What does "the best" even mean? (Hint: it's VERY subjective) To dig deeper, we'll be chatting with two CMOs grappling with these questions regularly Matt Breuer, CMO at Buffy and Yiota Avraam, CMO at Cornershop which was acquired by Uber.
About our Speakers:
Matt Breuer is the CMO at Buffy. Buffy is on a mission to help you us live comfortably—without making our planet uncomfortable. That’s why they use earth-friendly fabrics and manufacturing methods to create more sustainable products, from first sketch to last stitch and beyond. They don't just help you feel good today. They contribute real good for tomorrow. After 2 years of joining Buffy, Matt oversees revenue strategy, marketing, creative, storefront and merchandising, while driving the company’s sustainability efforts and launching new products. Last year, Buffy achieved profitability while revenue grew more than 30% year-over-year, and the company expects to surpass $100 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2021.
Yiota Avraam is the CMO of Cornershop by Uber. Cornershop by Uber is the app that connects your front door to your city's top stores in as little as 60 minutes. Founded simultaneously in Santiago, Chile and Mexico City in 2015, we now operate in eight countries across the Americas: Chile, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Canada, and the US. In July 2020, Uber acquired a majority stake in the company, providing an important injection of capital that allowed us to access more resources to continue building and improving our service over the upcoming years. Yiota manages a team of ~80 global marketers across LATAM & North America to build Cornershop/Uber Grocery on-demand grocery+ delivery business.
