Danielle Wood has over 10 years of experience in Business Development, much of which has been spent at early-stage companies. At Candidate Labs, she is focused on cultivating both new client relationships and deepening our existing relationships with our base of high-growth clients.
Danielle graduated with a B.S. in Advertising from top-ranked Moody College of Communication in 2011. Her transition into the high-tech space was driven by her move to Impulse LLC, a Network Security company, where she received the award for Top Revenue Sold Annually as a National Account Manager. During her near 5-year tenure at Impulse, she was responsible for building out the CS function for over 200 customers, which included wide-scale customer education and identification of usage gaps in the software to increase ACV through client expansion.
Danielle later moved into an Account Executive role at PeopleGrove, a mission-driven software company focused on providing scalable mentorship solutions to underprivileged students. Within 6 months, she was solely responsible for owning business acquisition for the Southeastern US. Most recently, Danielle came to Candidate Labs from Betts Recruiting, where she was hired to grow new business in both the software and services segment for the Eastern US.
Danielle currently lives in Dallas, TX with her pup. You can find her paddle boarding, bike riding, and enjoying the Texas sunshine.
