At our recent Tech Cocktail Chicago Mixer & Startup Showcase we were happy to bring Jen Busenbark, Sandra Dainora, Aaron Rankin, and Barbara Mousigian on stage to field a host of questions about product facing roles. It all went off without a hitch thanks to the hard work of our sponsors CDW, 43North, and Cars.com.
The common thread between our panelists is the fact that they each play an important role when it comes to product at their respective companies. Busenbark is the Lead Product Manager at Braintree, Dainora is Director of Product at GrubHub, Rankin is CTO at Sprout Social, and Mousigian is the VP of Product at Cars.com.
Over the course of the hour panelists were asked questions by both Frank Gruber, our moderator, and the audience. What’s the value of a product manager to your organization? What approach do you take towards your product? How do things get prioritized? What’s the relationship between tech and product?
All of this and more was asked and answered, and the panelists each have a unique take on each question. Check out their diverse range of answers in the video here:
