As many of you have already heard, we have a new CEO at Zinch. Her name is Anne Dwane and she is a rock star. Harvard b-school. Cofounder of Military.com. Sold it to Monster. Has been with Monster for years as a General Manager. Now joining us. We’ve known Anne for about 9 months now; the more we get to know her, the more we like her. You can check out her bio, her LinkedIn profile, and her Facebook Profile to better understand what she’s all about. We are excited to have her and we think she compliments our team well.
Everyone who knows her would agree that she is fun to be around, easy to work with, and very thoughtful in her approach. She’s a proven leader, a seasoned entrepreneur, tough when she needs to be tough, and an all-around talented individual.
We believe Zinch has an enormous amount of potential. Our team is full of young, hard working, scrappy entrepreneurs. Much of our talent is raw –ready to be enhanced, enabled, and amplified. We believe that Anne has exactly what it takes to achieve just that and to help our team stay focused and disciplined as we scale.
This is a huge step for us. Huge. We didn’t take this decision lightly.
Nonetheless, we know this is the right step for Zinch. We want Zinch to succeed more than anything. We want it to reach its full potential and to really make the impact on education that it can. To do that, we need to surround ourselves with people who are better, stronger, and smarter than us (especially our leader). Anne certainly is. We are happy to have Anne join our team and we are excited to embrace the challenges ahead. We trust her and believe in her. She is the new captain of our ship.
As Obama says, this is change we can believe in.
