Kenneth is a product management consultant who helps early stage SaaS businesses scale, from those first few pilot customers to true product/market fit and beyond. He teaches company leaders to proactively build the right process and hiring plan for their organization as it grows, instead of making costly bets on inefficient processes and bad hires.
Kenneth has spent 10+ years leading tech products through the full product lifecycle. He was the first product manager at Slack, responsible for the core product through its growth from 100k to 1M+ daily users. He helped Slack mature from a fledgling company of 25 to an emerging leader of 200+, mentoring junior team members and introducing key process improvements. He co-founded YesGraph, raised money from top investors, hired a team, and built it from a nascent idea to a launched product in active usage by companies like Airbnb, Pinterest, and others. At Adobe, Kenneth helped build some of its first SaaS products, managed the $100M+ Dreamweaver business, and drove critical acquisitions including Typekit, Omniture, and Behance.
Kenneth also works with the portfolios of several venture capital firms and accelerators as a product management advisor or mentor. Current affiliations include First Round Capital, Flybridge Capital Partners, and Acceleprise.
Kenneth earned a master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction and a bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Cognitive Science, and HCI at Carnegie Mellon University.
