What it is like to scale a global company?

Cintrifuse is excited to welcome Venture Parter Alston Gardner, of Fulcrum Equity Partners, for a Fireside Chat facilitated by CEO Wendy Lea.

Under Alston's leadership, OnTarget grew from start-up to the industry leader in sales force development with $75 million in revenue and 100+ professionals in fifteen countries prior to selling the firm to Siebel Systems for $250M (now part of Oracle) in 1999.

Wendy will interview Alston on growing and scaling a major software company that serviced clients like HP, Cisco, Dell, Microsoft, Oracle, Alcatel Siemens, IBM, and Xerox.
