Vouch for them.

Craig Stanford
They're my friends  •  Vice President / Shepherd of Growth & Co-Founder, Flawk, Inc. and Principal, Stanford Consulting Group.
I have known Pierce for close to 15 years. He has had valuable experience working in senior business development roles at a handful of sta ... rtups, including taking one from early days to IPO. He is bright, creative and driven and excels at ideation. On two different companies he founded, he identified a clear need in the market place, developed the business and executed well against it. In one instance, as it was a physical product, he designed it, sourced international vendors for the manufacturing of the product, and handled all marketing activities to get the product prominently featured in The Apple Store. Pierce is an analytical thinker, a doer (I.e., he gets shit done), a realist AND a guy you would want to drink a beer with after work. I hold him in the highest regard.

Sri Pangulur
They're my friends  •  Vice President, Sales | West, Tongal. Previously VP, Sales & Business Development, Sociable Labs.
I have known Pierce for 8 years and we got to know each other really well when we were both in the online marketing space from 2010 to 2014. ... The first thing that struck me about Pierce is how intelligent he is about a particular space and how effectively he can communicate the value proposition of the product or business case he is selling to a customer/stakeholder. He is very thorough and tenacious but also has a creative side that really makes him stand out from other sales and bd leaders. I have seen him propose and close very complex deals that required convincing multiple stakeholders in several different functions at some of the largest retailers in the world. Pierce is a stand-up guy and someone I consider a trusted colleague, advisor and friend.

Sri knows the software industry very well and can quickly access if something is a good idea or not, whether it be a company, a product, a d ... eck, a strategy, or a tactic. He's also had a successful career in software sales, management and BD.
