Our Team

Bernt Gudmestad
Founder and Implementation Consultant

Bernt is our founder and expert Salesforce consultant. He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2011 and worked as a test engineer until 2014, when he discovered a passion for developing custom solutions to the marketing and data management problems faced by companies. He found that he particularly enjoyed acting as a bridge between his non-technical clients and the high tech world of marketing automation and CRMs. In order to make that role the primary focus of his work, he began freelancing in April 2018 from his office in Redwood City, CA, and has enjoyed collaborating with clients such as Cherry Creek Mortgage Company, Galileo Learning and beGlammed.

 

In his free time, Bernt enjoys working on his car and motorcycles, traveling, hiking and backpacking.

Jillian L.
Implementation Consultant

Jillian is our first team member and a fellow Salesforce consultant. She received her B.S. in Biotechnology from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2009 and worked as a bench scientist until 2018, when she began collaborating with Bernt on some thorny data analysis problems. This led her to realize how much fun it could be to leverage her background in science to help clients better understand their company’s data and therefore make better business decisions. Since then, she has been perfecting her Salesforce and Marketing Cloud skills, with a special emphasis on creating Reports and Dashboards.

 

In her free time, Jillian enjoys reading, writing, hiking and traveling.
