A startup junkie through and through, Cassie has been immersed in the New York tech scene for almost a decade and is presently a VP at Gerson Lehrman Group, where she oversees marketing and analytics for new business initiatives. Previously, she was vice president of marketing for Savored.com and prior to that, she held a variety of marketing roles at TheLadders.com, primarily within the company’s consumer subscription business.
Cassie began her career as an analyst on the TMT coverage team at Citigroup, but quickly realized the error of her ways! She fondly recalls her banking colleagues insinuating that she’d legitimately lost her mind when she walked out of the bank in a boom year to pursue the start-up dream, and is incredibly excited about the growth that the NYC tech scene has enjoyed in the six years since.
Cassie holds a bachelors degree from Duke University and an MBA from the Tuck School at Dartmouth.
