Peter Reardon is Datch’s Head of Sales.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I have been a sales professional my entire career starting with selling newspapers as an 11 year old and graduating to corporate roles as an individual contributor and as a sales manager. I really love working with prospects and customers to understand their business needs and coming up with solutions to help solve problems, improve their operations, and help them to succeed.
What brought you to Datch?
I wanted to join a company that not only has game changing technology but is also purpose driven and Datch has both of these unique qualities. For a very long time the frontline workers have been neglected from a technology reporting standpoint when it comes to making their daily reporting tasks easier. All the applications have been focused on helping the management team with data collection to run business reports but the burden to collect this data has fallen onto the frontline worker. With Datch we are solving this problem using Voice AI making it much quicker, easier, and safer for the frontline worker to complete their daily repetitive tasks while also creating better data for management reports.
What’s your favourite thing to do outside of work?
My favorite activity is being on the ocean with family and friends. The ocean is beautiful , magical, and a powerful force of nature that has always intrigued my sense of curiosity, and exploration. Whether it be swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving fishing, or sailing, I am always drawn towards the ocean no matter where I am traveling in the world.
What’s your greatest accomplishment?
I was working for a small startup and our average deal size was 40K annually for a SaaS subscription. I had a creative idea that leveraged the same software into a different application which resulted in a $880K transaction and launched a new business unit where the average deal size became $300k.
What’s your favourite movie?
It is hard to pick a favorite, but I would have to say, The Killing Fields. It’s a very powerful and memorable true story about human survival and keeping promises no matter how difficult the circumstances. It reminds me a lot of my childhood and the people I grew up while living for 9 years in Bangkok, Thailand.
