Lisa Knupp

Ronette is someone who is not ok with just watching opportunities pass her by. She likes to be the one creating opportunities and taking ad ... vantage of opportunities. She does not watch life pass by. There is not a moment that she is being unproductive. She is a people person, and is genuine in all that she does. She will do well no matter what she does and she will enjoy it while she does. Lisa

We worked together  •  President Fetch Advisors & Fetch Recruiting. Lover of dogs, hater of beets.
Ronette comes from a strong background in Startup Finance. She's scaled and been through all phases of the a startup's lifespan, and is able ... to apply that knowledge to her client base by offering tailored CFO-for hire services (finance, accounting, etc).

Peter Sanchez
We worked together  •  Sr. Software Developer, Founder, Netlandish Inc.. Previously Sr. Python Developer, Huge.
Ronette is a great leader and has the ability to drive a team while being tough but insanely friendly at the same time. I loved the time we ... spent working together on various projects.
Mike Bohley
We worked together  •  Account Director, DataXu. Previously Account Director, West Coast Programmatic & Integrated Sales, TEN: The Enthusiast Network.
When Ronette and I worked together she came in to clean up PriceGrabber's accounting department. She came into a situation with few resourc ... es, and little internal appreciation and turned the team into a company facing, transparent, engaged department which is unbelievable. She went above and beyond her responsibilities and title, shaping company strategy and corporate culture. Considering I was in client services, and I had so many personal interactions and thoughts about Ronette it illustrates her ability to work cross department and make herself an integral piece of a corporate structure.
Nicholas Pennino, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®

She is good performing at a high level in various functional roles.

Ronette is someone you want with you heading into battle. Aside from being incredibly thoughtful and strategic when it comes to finance and ... operations, she is cool, calm and collected when issues arrive.
Henry Min
We worked together  •  Founder, Executive Creative Director, M Co. Previously Chief Product Officer, Adly, Inc.
Ronette is a great entrepreneur because she thinks on her feet and doesn't wait for tasks or to-do's to be distributed. She grabs opportunit ... ies by the bull horns and is very driven to get to the goal while being super collaborative with her team. I've seen Ronette take difficult situations that are challenging and turn them into opportunities. Which is why she's a great entrepreneur who knows how to navigate the rough waters to keep the raft moving forward.
Arnie Gullov-Singh
We worked together  •  Chief Operating Officer, Polyvore and Chief Revenue Officer, Polyvore. University of Southern California grad.
Ronette is a must have partner for any founder or startup CEO, as she nails the traditional CFO duties of accounting, FP&A, hr & facilities, ... as well as operating functions like like sales ops & customer service, which are key to scaling a business but not typically in a founder's wheelhouse. And she can do all of these without hiring a big team. If I were running an early stage company, Ronette would be my first exec hire every time.
Chris Fontanella

Marcel Chastain
We worked together  •  Organizer, LA Django Meetup and Founder, ShowroomShare.
Ronette has proven over and over again that she has what it takes to provide calm, thoughtful and valuable leadership in the most challengin ... g situations. She readily adapts to new situations and inspires everyone around her (throughout the company, not just her department!) to team up and Get Things Done. She is quite possibly the most patient and tactful person I've met in my life - one of the few people who've found the perfect balance between kindness/empathy/understanding and the absolute ability to move the needle as an executive leader. I'm proud to have worked with Ronette for years, and would jump at the chance to do so again!
