Her background and use of expert networks at Goldman Sachs, TPG and Silverlake inspired the journey to both disrupt and build an innovative, game changing platform. As the head of sales and marketing globally, Kimberley is focused on executing the mission to democratize access to knowledge and challenging the 'traditional' expert network business model by leveraging proprietary technology and the skills of a highly skilled and diverse team. Peggy and Kimberley will share a few of their own career highlights that lead them to Lynk, and also share a few details on their knowledge network, including information on how they "recruit" new expertise to join their platform.
