Krishan Gupta
We worked together  •  Product Director, eMeter (Sequoia-funded, recently acquired). Also led Machine Learning & Analytics products at Cisco, Dipity, Symantec.
Krishan wants to make an impact on the world. He is very thoughtful and can cut through the clutter of conventional wisdom to think about r ... eal problems that need to be solved. He's experienced enough to know the challenges in bringing products to market but still has the drive to make a difference. Krishan has built a great network over the years and will be able to recruit an excellent team.

Monica Adractas
We worked together  •  Senior Director, Customer Retention, Box. Previously Associate Principal, McKinsey & Company. Harvard Business School grad.
Monica runs a team that is at the forefront of innovation around customer retention and customer success. Given the volume of Box customers ... , they are able to see trends, patterns and results faster than smaller companies. In addition, Monica has brought a rigorous analytical approach to the company which I'm sure she'll leverage in her advisory work. I strongly recommend her.

Jon Herstein
Senior Vice President, Customer Success, Box. Previously Vice President, Professional Services, NetSuite.
Jon has been through the SaaS / software startup journey several times with some world-class companies. He's an expert at helping companies ... scale their customer operations (Customer Success, Services, Support, etc.) He's also one of the nicest, sharpest and most entertaining people I know. I highly recommend him.
