In this episode, Melissa Silva shares her story of supporting Andrew Dreskin, the CEO of Ticketfly, through two acquisitions! Melissa gives REACH listeners a peek behind the curtain as to what it’s like to support someone through such intense periods of change and how she adjusted from being the sole admin in a scrappy startup to part of a broader admin team at Pandora and later, Eventbrite. If you’re wondering what it’s like to transition from a small startup to an established organization, or how your role might evolve if your company is acquired – or you’re just looking for an excuse to laugh out loud for a half-hour, this episode is for you!

We celebrate what makes each candidate and company unique.
