“A lot of people start to feel is they have to get out of the thing that they really love in order to get compensated. If you are in a role where you feel like there’s a career ceiling, that should be a topic of conversation that you have with the people who lead you.” – Rob Seolas
Can your top talent see a career trajectory within your organization? This week Rob Seolas joins Jen Anderson, CEO of Moving Forward Solutions, to discuss how CEOs can support and nurture top talent by creating career trajectories that are a custom fit for their teams.
Rob Seolas has a demonstrated history of founding and leading companies to high performance, most recently co-founding ObservePoint in 2007 and serving as CEO from inception until 2019. Under his leadership, the employee talent grew from just a few to more than 100, at both ObservePoint’s headquarters and in multiple international offices. Rob also played a key role in creating partnerships with over 40 strategic global partners and growing a segment-leading customer base of more than 350 world-class, enterprise brands such as Delta, NBC, Turner, Home Depot, and more. Rob artfully led ObservePoint through Series A and B fundraising and grew the company to over 15M in ARR.
During his time as CEO ObservePoint won numerous prestigious awards for its innovative digital data quality technology from Adobe and the Digital Analytics Association. ObservePoint was also recognized to be among the fastest growing tech companies by Deloitte, Inc. 500 and Mountain West Capital.
Thought-leader, life-enthusiast and successful entrepreneur, Rob has more than 15 years of experience leading innovation in the digital marketing space. Rob previously co-founded and built iLeadMedia, which was acquired by Think Partnership in 2006.
Rob Seolas shares how leadership teams can create a supportive culture and employment longevity by focusing on creating career paths that nurture individual talents. Listen in as Jen and Rob discuss finding a career that leans into your natural talents, why you don’t necessarily need a leadership role to keep growing within your career, and how CEOs can rethink their culture in order to retain and support top talent.
