Such a great app like this doesn’t just spring up out of nowhere. There is a lot of people behind the scenes making sure that everything is in working order. An article in the Huffington Post gave us a little look behind the curtain through Skout CFO, Portia Kersten. She has a bit of info as to her role in the company and what it takes to succeed.
Growing up reading constantly, Kersten had her choice of heroes who were able to defeat the odds and come out on top. She stated that her namesake, Portia, a Shakespeare character was another example of a good role model. Using this to bolster her will to succeed was easy and necessary since the sheer amount of work necessary can be daunting without efficiency and dedication. She had a hand in various start-up companies as CFO. From the beginning of her work career until now, each experience has just been another layer built up to contribute to each new company. Now that Kersten is with Skout, all of that experience will make keeping Skout successful a breeze.
