Los Angeles-based Startup Taps Colleen Sabatino for Business Development, Matthew Lorenc for Sales Operations and DeVere Kutscher for Training
BiasSync, a start-up SaaS-company whose mission is to create better outcomes for organizations by using science-based tools to reduce the negative impact of unconscious bias, has ramped up the leadership of its sales function with three major executive hires.
Colleen Sabatino has joined as Vice President for Business Development with a focus on sales growth. Matthew Lorenc has joined as Sales Operations Manager and will oversee key operations systems while building BiasSync’s sales infrastructure. DeVere Kutscher will lead the Training and Certification of BiasSync certified consultants. All will report to Michele Ruiz, CEO and Co-Founder.
BiasSync offers clients a new, science-based scalable SaaS solution designed to help organizations more effectively assess and manage unconscious bias in the workplace. The BiasSync solution combines proprietary unconscious bias measurement and relevant personality testing with engaging and compelling storytelling that leads to a road map of sustainable culture change. The company is developing additional assessments relevant to the workplace to be released over this next year. The startup has already secured clients and is moving to expand its sales force.
“We’re energized by the arrival of three dynamic, results-driven executives as we continue to grow our staff,” said Ruiz. “Colleen, DeVere and Matthew will help BiasSync expand, evolve and elevate.”
