We started Pathlight with one goal: to help sales managers.
Managing a sales team is hard, but it’s also really important. We know - we've built and worked with teams of all sizes. We know that staying on top of data is critical, but spending hours scouring the CRM is not a valuable use of a manager’s time.
We wanted to build a tool that a new manager could use on Day 1 and skip 2 years of pain and mistakes. We wanted to build a tool that would finally get the senior manager the insights they need in a fraction of the time. We wanted to build a tool that enables all managers to focus on high-value activities that lead their teams to success. So we built Pathlight.

Co-founder & CEO. Alex grew up in the Bay Area, went to school in North Carolina, and came back in 2010 to work on the growth team at LinkedIn. In 2011, he started SeatMe, a restaurant technology startup that was acquired by Yelp in 2013. He was named to Forbes 30 under 30 for this accomplishment, and stayed on at Yelp to increase SeatMe’s customer base by 1000%. He left Yelp in 2015 to start Pathlight. When he's not annoying Trey, he likes to play guitar, cook, and pretend to exercise.
Co-founder & CTO. Trey grew up and went to school in North Carolina before moving out west. After a few years, he found himself working with Alex at SeatMe as their principal architect and engineer. Not long after SeatMe’s acquisition by Yelp, where – engineering headcount quickly tripled, he found himself managing multiple teams and wishing there was a better way. His hobbies include BMX, avoiding haircuts, and animal husbandry.
