“Kurt joined the Corporate Executive Board (CEB) when it was basically a start-up and helped scale it to almost $1 billion in revenue and then saw it acquired by Gartner in a multi-billion-dollar exit. There aren’t many people who’ve seen the journey from beginning to end like that,” said Anand Sanwal, CEO and co-founder of CB Insights. “Kurt’s commercial and product experience, his familiarity with our business model and clients, and his extensive talent network have already proven invaluable. I look forward to partnering with him on our plans for world domination.”

“I’ve admired CB Insights for a while, and after getting under the hood a bit, it was exciting to see how big of an opportunity the company has before them and how much progress they’ve already made,” commented Reisenberg. “Just like CEB, they are delivering critical business insights to senior executives, but through a more evolved combination of data, analytics, research, and software that allows them to meet today’s standards of speed, breadth, and depth of coverage. I’m excited to be part of the Board and help the team drive the business forward.”
