Chris Golec has built three successful technology businesses in the last 18 years. As Founder and CEO of Demandbase, Chris's mission is to transform B2B advertising, marketing and sales through innovations in digital technology. Today, hundreds of blue-chip enterprises across the financial services, hi tech, manufacturing, healthcare and telecom industries have adopted Demandbase's B2B marketing platform and Account-Based Marketing (ABM) technology to dramatically improve the way they acquire and grow customers.
Prior to starting Demandbase, Chris founded Supplybase to help global manufacturers collaborate with their supply chain to bring new products to market. As one of the first successful B2B software and data solutions in the late 90’s, Supplybase was acquired in March, 2000 by i2 Technologies (Nasdaq: ITWO). Before becoming a software entrepreneur, Chris held multiple sales, marketing and engineering positions with GE, DuPont, and GM.
