HEAD OF GROWTH & MARKETING
Carol Tran is a product-led growth executive and 3x entrepreneur with years of growth hacking, marketing, product innovation, and data expertise. She is industry agnostic and has helped grow companies of nearly every size, vertical, and business model. She partners with company leadership, acting as a guide to reveal inefficiencies and grow the business using limited resources. She has a legal and neuroscience background that provides her a competitive edge in developing targeted, cost-effective programs that generate data-driven results. She is highly versed in digital marketing, SEO, strategic planning, new business and product development, and implementing go-to-market strategies for existing and new products.
Her passion for entrepreneurship translates across verticals: with broad professional experience from e-commerce (Bare Escentuals, Zenni Optical) to law and finance (Morgan Stanley) to high-tech/SaaS (Oracle) and retail (Nordstrom). Carol’s diverse industry background helps her diagnose problems quickly, illuminate blind spots, and promote growth. She believes strongly in philanthropy and giving back to her community, working closely with non-profit organizations to help them to think like startups, unlocking the dynamic nature of money and cycling funds back into their respective causes.
Carol was a dog mom until her little one passed away recently in 2023 after living a full life of 17 years. She misses her everyday and has a huge amount of love and compassion for animals.
