Dillon Patel

My experience cuts across tech & consulting- recently graduating from the Wharton School of Business with a full-tuition MBA Scholarship. I've worked at PwC and Instagram, but the the majority of my experience has been as an early member of BizOps at Zendesk where I led the GTM planning cadences, integrated acquired companies, and was asked directly by the COO to work with him on improving international execution. Currently, I'm the Chief of Staff at Sift, a Series E ML Startup focused on fraud prevention and abuse. For my fun fact, I love to bike and did Aids Lifecycle twice while I was at PwC, a ~500 mile charity ride from SF to LA.
