About the founders/CEO:
After more than 10 years working together in machine learning and computer science, Sam Levan, Francis Brero and Paul Cothenet founded MadKudu with the dream of empowering modern marketers to deliver a relevant and scalable customer journey.
Sam studied at both Ecole des Ponts ParisTech and the National University of Singapore. He began his career working at AgilOne as VP Product. Subsequently he became a mentor at techstars, which is a position he still maintains.
Paul graduated from University of California, Berkeley with a Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering. While at Berkeley, Paul worked as both a Graduate Student Instructor and Graduate Student Researcher. Like Sam, Paul also worked at AgilOne, but first as a Business Analyst/Data Scientist and then as a Product Manager.
Francis studied Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, while also starting his career at AgilOne as Associate Analyst. He continued to work at the company for several years, as Data Scientist Lead and Director of Implementation and Sales Engineering. As well as being the CRO of Madkudu, Francis is also a member of Modern Sales Pros, the world's largest community for leaders in sales, operations, enablement and related disciplines.
