Kris Skavish, co-founder at Two Octobers

Kris Skavish

Principal

In her career, Kris has always found herself in start-ups working in jobs somewhere between technology and people: from interactive multimedia to desktop software to local search, from designing on-screen interactions to product management. Maybe building Two Octobers was as inevitable as the entrepreneurship running through her veins (her parents built several successful small businesses). At Two Octobers, Kris runs operations with aplomb, and is the person to turn to for killer spreadsheet formulas, root-problem analysis, and sticky wickets of all kinds. Kris loves learning about different types of businesses and quickly narrows in on the best ways digital marketing can help them grow.
