Profile

Manny co-founded Outreach in 2014 and now serves as CEO. Prior to Outreach, Manny was employee number three on Amazon’s AWS team, and led the Microsoft mobile division from launch to $50M in annual revenue. He holds an MBA from Harvard and a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania. Manny is a model of vulnerable and transparent leadership to his employees, from his heartfelt weekly email to his employees, to the traditional Friday get-together where the whole company shares their highs and lows of the week. He is a proponent of saving the planet by consuming less and purchasing second-hand whenever possible (he might be the only CEO to take the stage at industry events in shirts purchased from Goodwill). Manny grew up in Ecuador and now lives with his wife and three children in Seattle.

  1. I don’t think I have ever worked with a CEO who is so engaged with his entire team (at least in a positive way). Manny has clear communication lines established with his employees, giving us at least weekly updates into strategy and direction. Also he has immense positive energy (and just pure energy), attention to detail, has created an environment that truly cares for its employees, and strives to continually the company culture. I have worked at other companies that have produced incredible products and growth (like here), but the emphasis on overall company culture is best I have seen.

  2. Manny takes time out of his day to greet every employee that crosses his path; he actively approaches individual contributers and teams alike to congratulate them on work well done. When things go wrong, he demands numbers and details, not anecdotes and stories. He is driven by fact, and demands the best of his teams in the name of his customers.
