Chris Degnan is the Chief Revenue Officer at Snowflake.  Chris was the first sales hire at Snowflake and has grown his team to over 300 people. Prior to joining Snowflake, Chris worked at Aveksa and Dell EMC for over nine years.  He is also on the board at Clumio. 

In this episode we talk about the most difficult product he’s had to sell in his career, his secret interview question and what sold him on Snowflake. He also shares about his fear of failure, how realizing he didn’t want his boss’ job prompted him to make a big job change, and the importance of grit.

I hope you enjoy the show.
