Life in a fast growing start up is tough. Even in the most successful, disruptive, and exciting startups, founders and employees are faced with a variety of challenges. In periods of hyper growth, years can feel like decades. Mistakes get made and lessons are learned. At the end of the day, successful startups are born out of a shared mission of builders who want to bring a new product to life.
There are a lot of ways to describe life in a startup, but one thing is for sure – it is not boring.
At Crew Capital we are committed to helping founders and their teams in navigating ups and downs in the craft of company building. We draw on our own experience in addition to that of our friends and community, because we know that while the founder journey can seem lonely, ultimately this is a team sport.
That is why we could not be more excited to be announcing that Sonia Damian is joining Crew as Head of Platform and Community. Sonia comes to us after years of building teams across product, R&D, sales, people ops, customer success, and presales. She was Head of Talent Acquisition for EMEA at UiPath where she helped scale the company globally. We are thrilled to have Sonia joining us as we continue to build Crew.
“Our partnership with Sonia is a reflection of our commitment to the Crew portfolio companies. Through nearly every phase of UiPath’s growth, Sonia was there to experience both the successes and the failures and helped executives in every part of our organization scale their teams. This is why Sonia is the perfect person to lead Platform at Crew.” – Daniel Dines, Founder
“Sonia was an instrumental People executive at UiPath, and we’re looking forward to the similarly impactful contribution she will make in working with Crew’s portfolio companies.” – Brandon Deer, Co-Founder
“We, at Crew, are incredibly excited to have Sonia joining us to lead our platform and community team. Her expertise in global talent acquisition is truly world-class. More importantly though, Sonia is a go-getter with an amazing degree of persistence and determination that she brings to her work in supporting founders and their companies.” – Dylan Reider, Partner
Congratulations and welcome Sonia – we’re thrilled to have you joining the Crew!
