  1. Anna is passionate about diversity and inclusion, and she has done an extensive amount of impactful work with women at Outreach to ensure they feel supported. In addition to being an active member in OWN (Outreach Women’s Network) and attending and speaking at Gals in Sals events, Anna takes it upon herself to personally connect with women throughout our sales organization. Anna frequently hosts dinners and happy hours with small groups of female sales colleagues to hear what is going well and what needs to be improved. For example, Anna learned in conversations that women felt like they were being excluded because they didn’t like giving their colleagues a “fist bump.” She championed a small behavioral change amongst the sales team that made all team members feel included. These small insights may not have surfaced if it were not for Anna taking the time to connect with people in such a personal way. Anna’s approach has generated greater visibility for our female sales leaders, which has led to new promotions and initiatives that have benefited many careers and our organization. Anna leads her team with a model of transparency. She discusses one-on-one with her team burnout, diversity of sales and other topics that weigh a mental toll. Through her weekly LinkedIn posts, Anna gives a shout-out to various employees to know that they are what makes Outreach, Outreach. Every team member, from junior level to director level, is just as vital to the organization and Anna makes that known.

  2. Anna is smart and approachable. She leads her team with empathy. During the past nearly two years, she has focused on not only her team’s performance, but their mental well being, rolling out initiatives such as a mandatory monthly “rest” day and requiring her team to take a lunch break and blocking breaks on their calendars. Under her tenure, the team significantly expanded when a lot of revenue orgs didn’t and exceeded their financial goals.

  3. Anna has literally come to Outreach and hit the ground running. She brings a strong presence to every meeting and room she enters, and has no problem challenging our CEO when he is wrong, or jumping to a decision. Anna will be key in our future growth.
