Back in July of 2019, Brad Rencher joined Scott Dorsey for a fireside chat to discuss his career at Adobe, how to get on the radar of a big company for acquisition, prioritizing change agents, and the future of enterprise software.

Brad has since become the CEO of BambooHR, the industry's leading software provider dedicated to powering human resources.
