Originally employee number ten at impact.com, Mike has contributed to every chapter of the company’s evolution, says the company. His roles have spanned all go-to-market functions, including serving as General Manager and VP of Global Sales and as impact.com’s first Chief Partnerships Officer. After a stint at Thanx as its Chief Revenue Officer, Mike now returns as Chief Revenue Officer, where he directs global commercial revenue activities.

Prior to this, she was Senior Manager, Communications and Marketing at Western Bankers Association and Communications Director at the California State Senate and Assembly. Earlier in her career, she worked as a news reporter.
Working closely with Jenna, in her new role as impact.com’s Chief Marketing Officer, Cristy Ebert Garcia will spearhead the company’s global marketing efforts.
