Kari is a friend of skunkworks, startups, and new thinking.
Kari has worked in startups, large corporations, product companies and service companies. Regardless of what vertical she was in, she plays a similar role, a chief of staff. Someone who understands intimately the needs to operationalize, run and scale. But Kari’s secret power is to be able o to understand how to vet and then plug in the ‘new’ into the existing business models. She does this in a way that is transformative but not disruptive. Kari brings along and aligns all of the decision-makers in a way that brings consensus and support. She knows how to frame the story of the new so that the existing understands, empathizes and supports
This is why she earned this coin.
