Speaker  

Joseph is CEO and co-founder of Gladly, a company he incubated at Greylock Partners with Dirk Kessler and Michael Wolfe. He believes that one of the keys to effective leadership is ensuring teams have the right tools to succeed. At Gladly, he’s working to empower customer service agents with a platform that turns them into heroes. This role builds on his customer service experience first as a co-founder and CEO of Connectify and later when it was acquired by Kana, one of the first digital customer service platforms which he helped take public in 1999. He also co-founded and was CEO of Vontu, the leader in data loss prevention, which was acquired by Symantec in 2007.

In addition to his role at Gladly, Joseph is a partner at Greylock Partners and on the Board of Directors of Sumo Logic, Grand Rounds and Trifacta.

Joseph received a B.S. in Applied Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and is currently a member of the Wharton Undergraduate Executive Board.
