Meet Promoboxx’s new Chief Revenue Officer, Daniel Stevenson! We are so excited to welcome Daniel to our team, and to get to know him better, we asked him a few questions. Check out his answers below!
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
After graduating from Boston University and spending some time in management consulting, I decided to settle down in Boston. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing startups here in a variety of interesting spaces (digital video editing, online collaboration, e-commerce, cloud storage, etc.). Most recently, I ran business development for Backupify.
What made you want to join the Promoboxx team?
I’ve spend the bulk of my career working with partners – helping technology brands sell through third parties. The Promoboxx solution spoke to me. I’ve been frustrated at the lack of tools available to close the loop between Brands, Resellers (retailers) and Consumers. I am also drawn to companies and management teams that aren’t afraid to rock the status quo.
What’s your favorite independent business in Boston?
K9 Strolls, a dog boutique here in the South End. The co-owners saw an opportunity and went for it and now have an amazing shop selling locally-sourced gourmet treats, etc. for dogs. They are also the best dog day care in Boston.
Deserted on an island, what three things do you bring?
Daniel Boulud, his kitchen and my wife, Julie.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?
“Just because it worked once doesn’t mean it will work again.” Translated: don’t always think you know how to solve a problem. Adapt. Innovate.
What is something that not many people know about you?
I was born in Hong Kong and went to high school in England. My relatives all think I have an American accent (I don’t).
Do you have any hobbies?
Not sure you’d call it a hobby, but I am a competitive rower. Started in college and now scull out of the incredible Community Rowing Inc. facilities in Brighton, MA. Means I end up seeing way too much of Boston and Cambridge at 5 am.
