MarketBeat had significant growth in 2018, but a lot of that growth sat on my shoulders. I have been at my work capacity for a while now, and my goal for 2019 is to build a business that can thrive without me and stand the test of time. To help achieve this goal, we have just brought on two new employees to help MarketBeat grow, achieve its next level of success and be less reliant on me for day-to-day operations.
The first employee we will be bringing on, Ryan Quam, will be serving as the vice president of software engineering and will lead up MarketBeat’s software development efforts. The second employee we will be bringing on, Will Bushee, will serve as the vice president of business development. He will be responsible for overseeing our partner relationships and other operational tasks. Both Ryan and Will come from BrightPlanet a technology company that specialized in gathering data from the deep web, which is in the process of winding down operations.
Here’s how it happened.
