Traci holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Oregon and an MBA from MIT.
“I’ve always found helping customers to realize their potential through connective technologies deeply inspiring. It’s a pleasure to join Beyond Now’s Board of Directors. I am eager to work with this talented group of inclusive and dynamic leaders to co-create with our customers and partners, delivering best-in-class scaled solutions at speed,” said Traci Corazin, Microsoft Corp.
Based in Dublin, Caelen King is a market entry and scaling expert for digital and technology companies. A former CEO and founder of WhatClinic.com, a profitable B2C healthcare marketplace, Caelen works with a range of Irish, European and US companies looking to expand beyond their respective regions and helps them to build their management teams, defining their routes to market and strategy. Prior to WhatClinic, Caelen was part of the founding team and ran the product and marketing departments for NewBay Software (a B2B SaaS company in the Telco space) which trade sold to RIM. Previously, he was one of the first employees of eSecurity company Baltimore Technology. Caelen is also an active angel investor with 16 technology investments including SaaS unicorn Intercom.
“I am looking forward to bringing my experience on other SaaS companies’ boards including xSellco, WhatClinic, Circit and Procurement Express and be part of a dynamic organization that’s making great strides in the marketplace arena. What Beyond Now is doing to pioneer digital marketplaces, especially in the SMB space, is very inspiring. I am excited to bring my expertise as an angel investor to the table to help the company grow and reach new heights,” said Caelen King, Bantry Technologies.
In collaboration with Ashley and Chris, Traci and Caelen will focus on accelerating Beyond Now’s global expansion, penetration to new verticals and bolstering its growing momentum in North America.
