Karl Siebrecht, Co-founder and CEO of FLEXE, shares how he went from being a Diving Officer in the U.S. Navy to becoming a serial entrepreneur. Prior to co-founding FLEXE, Karl was the President at aQuantive and the President and CEO of AdReady. Following a tenure in Ad Tech, a discussion among friends sparked the idea for creating FLEXE, the on-demand warehousing, fulfillment and logistics company founded in 2013. Now at 130 people, 1100+ warehouses and having recently completed their Series B, FLEXE is one of the fastest growing companies in Washington State. Karl discusses the lessons he learned at aQuantive and AdReady, FLEXE company culture, and what they look for during their hiring process. He also talks about his family, why he chose to go to Duke and Dartmouth, his favorite books, and his dream of building a company where people say “that’s the best company I ever worked for.”
