Peri Kadaster
We worked together at McKinsey & Company
Having worked with Paul both during our time together at McKinsey as well as in the bay area start-up ecosystem, I have continually been imp ... ressed with how multifaceted he is. Being able to tackle technical subjects as well as the business considerations is a rare combination - and doing so in an engaging manner of communication and leadership is nearly impossible to find. Paul has that rare combination of all of the above, and is part of what makes him an outstanding entrepreneur.
We worked together at McKinsey & Company
Paul has a fantastic way of communicating his enthusiasm for something and getting people organized around delivering on a vision.
We worked together at McKinsey & Company
Paul's ability to communicate his ambitions, drive, and creative thinking makes him an instant leader in any group of winners. He is able t ... o poke holes at his ideas and improve them constantly and quickly through level-headedness and analytical thinking from his legal/consulting background. However, in those careers he was never stretched enough and took a huge risk by starting a new career path, one that caters to his strengths - leading people, thinking about problems from a 360-point-of-view (tech, consumer, B2B, all else), and forcefully reaching the finish line.
