Dave Gerhardt, CMO of Privy

Dave Gerhardt

Dave represents one of the most exciting practitioners in the marketing industry today. Working in several of Bostons best known companies since 2009 including Constant Contact and HubSpot, although, Dave came into view with his work at Drift. For TMM, during these times whenever anyone asked who was killing it in the marketing world, we would always revert to the work being done by Drift at the time.

Since December 2019, Dave has been the CMO of Privy, a company focusing on helping e-commerce brands increase their growth through conversion and email marketing tools. In his spare time, he also is a guest lecturer at Harvard Business School, and maintains his Patreon following – the A-List, which you can be part of too.

There are two things we’ve really come to admire about Dave. The first is that he is a dedicated family man . But perhaps the thing that has most impressed me about Dave is his willingness to share. He could probably sneeze on Linkedin and get 1000 likes on the platform these days, but we know we have personally gained a lot from Dave’s work.
