Crystelle Desnoyer

As an Operator, I am focused on scaling tech. organizations. I helped grow 26 global companies in many fields serving as their Operations (including Marketing, HR, Revenue Ops) & Business Development executive. With 2.5 years in e-commerce, 5 years in management consulting and 2 years in Venture Capital I bring a multi-layered perspective to teams that need to execute fast. I am also an active member of CHIEF and CEOX, two exclusive networks of female leaders and executives in the tech sector. Additionally, I support the International Women in Business, Chiefs in Transition, the VCs/Angels and the Chief of Staff groups within Chief. My last role as Chief of Staff to Maëlle Gavet, CEO at Techstars (a global pre-seed investment company - 340 employees)) had me focused on a few areas including but not limited to: CEO branding, business process improvement, OKR/KPI process management, change management, internal and Board data reporting and BI, external stakeholder management, etc. Prior to my role at Techstars, my latest venture as VP of Marketing Operations and first employee, at a US based D2C brand led me to launch the brand in 2019 in Germany, France and Italy and grow the company to a a $30+million business by building and leading all 3 teams in just under 2 years. Over that time I also led the launch of 19 SKUs as well as the brand relaunch in all 3 markets in January 2021. Prior to starting Pomélo+Co., I helped tech. companies in many fields aiming at redeveloping national distribution & sales networks, building strategic go-to market plans by completing market studies, recruiting and training key team members, advising on business development and strategic partnerships, etc.
