Meet Our Award-Winning Team Members
Every year at TrustRadius we celebrate the TRUTH Awards!
We recognize one team member who embodies each of our core values,
and one team member who embodies them all.
Here are our winners for 2021:
“Matt sets a high bar and demonstrates the TrustRadius values on a consistent basis. He’s a good all around human being who is setting the example of collaborating with various teams across the company to drive outcomes with unstoppable persistence while upholding a high level transparency & respectfulness.”
“I have witnessed Kaylin constantly going above and beyond every single day to be transparent with the entire company, her immediate team, and with her direct reports . She helps to bridge gaps in information and bring people together on issues and initiatives. She isn’t afraid to share bad news, and is often the first person to recognize the work of others (and never fails to do so publicly).”
“Mirla has been a great partner on the CS Ops team. She has been so respectful in working through account transitions and helping onboard newbies who need a lot of coaching, education and redirection. I appreciate how Mirla has handled the need to educate, clarify or explain things – onboarding at a new company can be stressful when you don’t know (what you don’t know) – and Mirla has handled new folks getting engaged in accounts with respect and kindness.”
“Summer is crushing it with everything she touches. She is exceeding sales quotas, involved in the Culture and Employee Engagement Committees, and always willing to help anyone in need. She is definitely unstoppable!”
“Over the last year, in addition to taking on more of a leadership role on the team (and doing a great job), he’s continued to volunteer for additional individual contributor work, as the need arises. He’s always a great help and resource to everyone on the team and is a very important influence on our team’s culture of team work and service.”
“Lane has her fingers in EVERYTHING. Yet she is still able to be human and find work/life balance, be transparent and share amazing ideas,. . . Lane is a natural empathetic leader who lives our company values.”
Meet Our Executive Team
Founder & Chief Executive OfficerVinay Bhagat
Vinay conceived TrustRadius after experiencing challenges when buying enterprise solutions at his last company. He founded Convio in 1999, the leading SaaS platform for nonprofits. In April 2010, Convio became a public company, and was acquired in May 2012 for $325 million. He holds an MBA from Harvard Business School where he graduated as a Baker Scholar, an MS Engineering Economic Systems from Stanford University, and a MA Engineering Information Sciences from Cambridge University with First Class Honors. When he’s not working, Vinay loves playing with his kids, swimming and the occasional squash game.
Mike brings a strong track record of building marketplaces and communities to the TrustRadius team. Before joining TrustRadius, Mike was Vice President of Marketplace Design for the Vrbo business unit (formerly Homeaway) at Expedia. There he leveraged network effects to maximize participation in the marketplace through ratings and reviews. Mike’s previous executive leadership roles include Asure Software and PeopleFluent/Authoria. When he’s not busy leading product teams with an experiment-driven approach, Mike enjoys traveling and being on the lake with his wife and two sons.
Bill brings over 25 years of experience working in and/or leading the back office functions within software companies such as i2 Technologies, Worksoft, Inc, and Bloomfire, Inc. As the CFO at Bloomfire, Bill recently led the organization to a successful exit and was recognized by Austin Business Journal as CFO of the Year in 2017. In addition to having a knack for driving the necessary process changes to put companies on solid financial footing, Bill is known for “humanizing” the back-office function to the rest of the organization. When not telling groan-worthy dad jokes around the office or on Slack, you’ll find Bill, and his wife of 27 years Rachel, exploring the goods and bads of being new empty-nesters.
VP of ResearchMegan Headley
Megan leads Research at TrustRadius, whose mission is to ensure TrustRadius delivers high quality, useful and, above all, trustworthy user feedback to help prospective software buyers make more informed decisions. Before joining TrustRadius, Megan was Director of Sales and Marketing at Stratfor, where she was in charge of growing the company’s B2C revenue stream through email marketing and other channels. She enjoys traveling, reading, and hiking.
VP of SalesAndrew Lamb
Andrew brings 20 years of sales experience from the ‘dotcom’ era and Austin startups to TrustRadius as our sales leader. Most recently Andrew helped outboundEngine and ObjectRocket, a Rackspace Company, scale their sales teams and prior to that, he helped grow Spiceworks from $5M to $70M. When not whiteboarding with his team, you might find Andrew relaxing on a hike with his family or taking in a show at The Moody Theatre.
VP of Customer SuccessBob Tate
Bob leads Customer Success at TrustRadius, and feels like this role is the perfect intersection of his past careers. Bob is known for running high-performance marketing and Customer Success teams at high-growth public companies like Latitude Communication, Convio / Blackbaud, and Community Brands. Underlying all of these experiences is a focus on delivering value and a great customer experience. Ironically, after 21 years in Austin, Bob relocated to the east coast only to work for another Austin company shortly after. When not talking to customers, you’ll find Bob in the middle of a never-ending remodel project.
VP of MarketingAllyson Havener
Allyson leads the marketing strategy at TrustRadius across all functions including demand gen, PR, product, and partner marketing. She’s driven to establish TrustRadius as the platform where buying decisions are made. Allyson brings experience and expertise in hyper growth marketing from previous roles at LiveRamp, an enterprise SaaS company. In her spare time she teaches yoga and finds anything to do outdoors.
