Kris Rudeegraap is the CEO of Sendoso, the leading Sending Platform. It feels like every SaaS CEO is an engineer or product genius that spends the majority of his or her time coding. Kris is an example of a salesperson turned CEO, which gives me hope for my entrepreneurial ventures in the future. As an Account Executive at Talkdesk, Kris had an idea: there has to be a better way to create a connection with customers through sending gifts. In under 5 years, his idea has turned into one of the hottest start-ups in San Francisco, raising $54M+ and expanding rapidly.
