We’re excited to announce that Sarah Wood has been promoted to Head of Operations.
Since joining Upstream, Sarah has been instrumental in driving growth and revenue for the company. One of her greatest talents is seeing the big picture and figuring out how to get us there, with no job being too small.
In Sarah's time as Head of Community & Growth, millions of dollars were deployed into investments where the founders and investors met through Upstream’s community.
Sarah also spearheaded Upstream’s pronoun feature which went live on Upstream well before other notable players in the social networking industry.
More than just growing our community externally, Sarah has also shaped our team and culture internally.
Since joining as employee number 5, Sarah has been essential in building the rockstar team we have today. She recruited and helped hire our global and diverse team, with 72% of our team identifying as women or POC.
In her role as Head of Operations, Sarah will be focused on helping our team operate to its fullest potential and deliver the best experience possible for members in our Collectives and Communities.
One of Sarah’s greatest strengths is her ability to see a vision all the way through to execution. We couldn’t be more excited about the future of Upstream. With Sarah leading Operations, we’re gonna get there.
