We would like to give a warm welcome to Marcelo Calbucci who is joining our team as Vice President of Product! In his new role, Marcelo will be leading the team that is focussed on streamlining the way Hiya’s 30M+ users connect with businesses from directly within the phone’s dialer.
Prior to joining the Hiya team, Marcelo spent seven years working in HealthTech, a year at Startup Studio Pioneer Square Labs experimenting with products in education, real estate, e-Sports and the early years of his career working at Microsoft on Bing. We are thrilled that he will be lending his vast expertise towards making a significant impact in improving the overall phone experience.
While we could talk about Marcelo’s enthusiasm for his new role at Hiya, it’s best to read about it in his own words…
I’ve known Hiya’s founder, Alex Algard, for over a decade, and he’s one of the great entrepreneurs and angel investors in Seattle. Alex was also an investor in my first startup back in 2006. When he told me about Hiya, I was immediately intrigued. Hiya is working on a huge opportunity, and our service offering can help everyone who has a smartphone. We have a talented and diverse team of people. The people I’ve met take pride in their work, and they get so much done.
