We’re excited to announce that Eric Winquist has joined our board of directors. Eric founded Jama Software in 2007, growing the company to 200 employees and leading it to a massive $200 million investment round. That round is recognized as one of the largest in Portland’s history.
Bigleaf on a similar growth path. Over the past 18 months, we’ve doubled revenue and headcount, attracted $4.9 million in investment and expanded our footprint around the globe. Eric’s extensive background scaling a company like ours and navigating the inherent challenges that growth presents — things like building out a team, guiding product strategy and working through strategic partnerships — are areas where Eric will provide immense value as we navigate our own period of intense growth.
Despite the high demand for his time, Eric sees the momentum we’ve built and the opportunity we have to become another part of Portland history. We’re excited to work with him on this next phase of growth for Bigleaf.
