Hefley joins as CRO with Kohari taking the COO position
"What we're learning is that even companies that are running retrospectives correctly are not unleashing the full potential of their teams," said Retrium CEO David Horowitz. "Retrium helps overcome the challenges and obstacles most commonly preventing full productivity, and the addition of Chris and Niki to the team points to the value we're delivering to agile teams."
Niki Kohari is an executive coach and serial entrepreneur. Former vice president of operations at Adzerk, Kohari also co-founded both AgileZen, which was acquired by Rally Software in March 2010, and task management and collaboration platform TaskTorch. Kohari joined Retrium in late 2016 to guide the expanding operations needs of the growing company.
"While Ryan (Detweiler, co-founder and CTO) and I have made significant headway in improving the way teams conduct retrospectives, there is still a lot of work to do," continued Horowitz. "Retrium's strong growth, unique position in the market and vision for the future is helping us attract top talent. Having Chris and Niki on board to help guide and influence the enhancements we make to the Retrium platform will be invaluable."
Earlier this month, Retrium announced that it had closed over one million dollars in funding which would be used, in part, to grow the team.
Retrium is the only enterprise-ready solution for agile retrospectives. With over 11,000 retrospectives performed using the platform to-date, Retrium has quickly become the standard among leading agile organizations, including GE Healthcare, Navis, PointClickCare, Ticketmaster.
